Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–In jaunty rhyme, an unnamed narrator relates how his older cousin constantly teases him by telling him frightening lies: Please don't eat that piece of pie;/That piece of pie could make you die!/It's full of poison, through and through–/It might just be the end of you! The younger boy doesn't know when to believe him, because sometimes Ed does tell the truth. After a while, the narrator recognizes the teasing for what it is and plays an appropriate joke on his cousin. Many youngsters will identify with the problem of being taunted in this way by an older child, or even an adult. In one instance, Dad contributes to the problem by agreeing with his nephew that mothers have eyes in the back of their heads. Readers may be comforted by the protagonist's decreased gullibility at the story's end. Although his parents seem to be aware of the situation, they do not chastise Ed, making it seem all the more important for the younger boy to take his own action. The large, detailed cartoon illustrations in watercolor, acrylics, colored pencil, and ink add a great deal of interest and humor to the tale. During the poisoned pie episode, the narrator is drawn with eyes that practically pop off the page. This book can be enjoyed independently or shared with a group as a great lead-in for discussions about teasing and bullying.–Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, NJ

Format: Hardcover
Caralyn Buehner and Jack Davis did such a fantastic job with this book that it left both my children (ages 4 and 5)and myself rolling with laughter by the end! The narrator pretty much explains his dilemma of never knowing when his ornery older cousin is telling the truth, or just teasing him. The older cousin starts out by begging the narrator (whose name is never revealed) not to eat his piece of pie because it could be poisonous and he could die. The narrator states, "A poison pie? Could it be true? With Cousin Ed you never knew." The narrator proceeds to explain to the reader (with various hilarious examples) why he never knew. By the end, the gullible narrator has grown a bit wiser and manages to get the last laugh!
Anyone out there with an ornery relative can most likely relate to this book! The illustrations are just as comical as the story line. This is definitely one of my kids' favorites. My four year old has it memorized. This is the first Caralyn Buehner book we have ever read, but it will certainly not be the last!

I use this in my classroom to start the conversation about lying. Is lying ever ok? What happens if you lie too often? Great story!

I just discovered this book, although it came out in 2007. Fantastic! I read it to my 6 year old son and 9 year old daughter and we all loved it! Funny story, awesome illustrations, and great rhyming! My husband over heard me reading the book and he loved it too!
