The majority of the story takes place in Kokonino County, home to the 9 New Muses. Emma, an orphan escaping from a bad situation in her current foster home, follows Feather, Muse of Plants and a doughnut addict, back to Kokonino County where HUMANS ARE NOT ALLOWED! Emma needs help with her stepfather, but gets wrapped up in the Muses' arms race [smart pies and defenses against smart pies]. The intended audience should love the story, but there's enough depth to the story that an adult [or a really precocious kid] can take away a lot from reading Attack of the Smart Pies. Even though Kokopelli, Muse of Tunes and Tricks and flinger of pies, might like me to give up the ending [especially since the trickster plays a key role in the resolution of the story], I won't be a spoiler and tell you what happens.
I will be extremely pleased when my copy of Attack of the Smart Pies makes its way into the library at the high school where I teach.
My son Benedict (age 10) writes: When I read the book Attack of the Smart Pies, I thought it was good. It's lots of fun and very funny. In the story, there is a bird who likes donuts. Larry Gonick made up funny names of donuts with fish flavor, or raisin-glazin' It is a really ingenious book There are also many beautiful drawings in it, of imaginary creatures. A great picture I found was one of the machine throwing the pies. I like Larry Gonick's work very much-I also have read and enjoyed his Cartoon History of the Universe, vol. 1-7.
