Alice loves her Aunt Polly, and she connects with her beloved aunt through one of Polly’s favorite things: making pies! When her aunt unexpectedly passes away, Alice is left with Aunt Polly’s cat, Lardo, and a mystery! What is the secret to her aunt’s world-famous pie-crust recipe? And why did she leave the recipe to Lardo? Small-town politics, pie-baking contests, and a few red herrings make this a delightful read. With a pie recipe at the beginning of each chapter, you and your kids will be running to the kitchen to make award-winning pies all month long!
