Product Description
Ol' Bear's got a hankering for some Ugly Pie. So off he goes on a search past woodsy little homes where he smells the drifting scent of pie. Grandpa Grizzle's got a pleasin' pumpkin pie. Ma Hickory has a righteous rhubarb pie. Sweet Cicely has a heavenly honey pie. But no one has any Ugly Pie--just the ugliest ingredients you ever did see. Wait one second! Ingredients? Maybe it's time for Ol' Bear to start cookin' up something himself!

For bear cubs who share ol' Bear's itch for an unsightly pie, there's a recipe included.



A Recipe for Ugly Pie
(Click on Image to Enlarge)




From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 Sweet molasses, my-oh-my. I'm itchin' for some Ugly Pie! sings Ol' Bear as he sets out in search of one. Grampa Grizzle, Ma Hickory, and Sweet Cicely have all baked some good-looking treats pumpkin, rhubarb, and heavenly honey pie but not one is what Ol' Bear has a hankerin' for. However, they do provide him with some ugly leftovers from their kitchens wrinkled red raisins, bumpy brown walnuts, and sour green apples. Ol' Bear goes home and realizes that he now has the ingredients for a wonderful Ugly Pie and sets about making one, and his neighbors all come to help him eat it. Large, bright watercolors, acrylics, and collage trace the bear's search as he goes from house to house. Tucked in every corner of the pictures are little woodland creatures that accompany him on his way, help him bake, and eat the final result: My-oh-my-oh-my! Some Ugly Pie! The recipe is appended with clear directions and the admonition that cubs in the kitchen should always have a big bear around while cookin'. This humorous tale should appeal greatly to little cubs everywhere. Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA

This book is best read to a young audience with a lot of enthusiasm (and a Southern accent isn't a bad idea). The recipe for ugly pie in the back makes for a fun activity for pre-K - 1st grade, and is something they can actually eat so they can see why Bear loves ugly pie so much.

I love this book so much that my students are performing it (as well as a few other children's books) in the 3rd-grade show in May. It is fun and easily lends itself to dramatic performances. There is even a recipe for "ugly pie" in the back of the book! How cool is that?

Great fun! My five year old found this one at the library and every time we go he looks for it again and again. While the story is simple, the vernacular is southern. A great treat as a bedtime story for adults and children alike.

I read this book to my second graders and they LOVED it! They pretty much understood all the concepts in the book, such as "hankerin' for pie" and "itchin' for". They tried to guess what kind of pie each different character would have. With the recipe at the end of the book, we talked about bringing an ugly pie to school to share and see who liked it!
The illustrations are cute and tells the story, too.

My son picked this book up from his school library. What a hoot we had reading this book!! I used my best southern dialect to go along with this great story. My son now wants to try the ugly pie recipe located in the back of the book.

After his journey to all his forest friends houses he has just what he needs for ugly pie! Never heard or tasted "ugly Pie" you say? Well you are in luck Ol' bear shares his family recipe with you so that you can try it with your family and friends!

I have two sons (ages 5 and 8). They LOVE gross things, like most boys. Santa brought this book for my 5 year old, and he LOVES it. My 8 year old happen to be around while I was reading it and he was captivated as well.

The best part is that there's a recipe so you can make your own Ugly Pie.

One of the best children's books I've read in awhile.

This book is simply charming and a lot of fun to read. My 4-year old gets into it as I always pause so he can say the often repeated words, "ugly pie". Makes it fun for us both. The fact that it adds the recipe (written in the same fun way as the story itself) is an added bonus. Glad to have this one in our family library.
