RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH A GOOD BOOK

   Hey, kids, ring in the New Year with one of our new books.   Sarah Weeks novel, Pie is a delicious mystery.   When Alice's Aunt Polly passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she?  In her will, she leaves the recipe to her disagreeable fat cat Lardo and leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.  Everyone in the community is clamoring for the recipe, and it’s up to Alice to discover the ingredients.  Fourteen pie recipes are in included.  YUM!
