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! Ol' Bear shares that Ugly Pie with his generous neighbours - and he shares his secret recipe, too, in the back of this book.

Review quote

"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
