Publisher's Description

Ol’ Bear wakes one morning with a hankering for Ugly Pie, so he goes on a search from neighbor to neighbor. All he finds are pies that please the eye and . . . ingredients? Wait a second. Maybe it’s time for Ol’ Bear to start cookin’ up something ugly himself! Ol’ Bear shares that Ugly Pie with his generous neighbors—and he shares his secret recipe, too, in the back of this book.

Lisa Wheeler’s story is a joy to read aloud and some parts just beg to be sung. Heather Solomon’s illustrations aren’t the least bit ugly, but full of lovely details and charming bears with big ol’ appetites for pie.

Editorial Reviews

"Modern-day children...[will] like the gentle humor, the repetition, the compelling details in the pictures, and the folksy tone."--The Horn Book

"If you're looking for a sweetened followup to a "Stone Soup" retelling, this offers a folklore-friendly slice."--Bulletin

"Wheeler's rural dialect text is fun to read....Even better are Solomon's predominantly watercolor illustrations."--Publishers Weekly

"The watercolor-and-acrylic illustrations pleasingly crowd the pages....Playful type adds swing to Ol' Bear's ditty, while a two-page recipe completes the tasty package."--Booklist

"This humorous tale should appeal greatly to little cubs everywhere."--School Library Journal
