Fabulous Pie product reviews

Deep in the forest, a very bad bear is baking a fabulous pie. All the woodland animals want to help him find the perfect filling, so they bring him their favourite foods: berries, nuts, honey and salmon. But the bear has a better idea for what can go in the pie... the animals themselves!

With wonderfully humorous illustrations from the internationally bestselling Guy Parker-Rees and a superb rhyming text from Gareth Edwards, the creators of NEVER ASK A DINOSAUR TO DINNER are on fine form with this fun-filled romp through the forest.

The cover of Fabulous Pie is very cute. There are a number of little characters to look at and the main character, the bear, takes up centre stage.

As I read the book to my children, they started to join in with the repetitive phrase "Fabulous pie, fabulous pie, who'll help to make the filling for my fabulous pie".
The rhyme and rhythm in the book are rather attractive to the reader and my children certainly enjoyed that aspect. Mr 5 was able to anticipate the end of each section of rhyme. It allowed him to be part of the reading of the book.

The illustrations are quite beautiful. Each page uses a wide variety of colours. There is a watercolour look to the illustrations. I enjoyed the simplicity of each character's eyes. It is amazing how an oval with a dot in it can be done in so many different ways to make the eye look different.

The book is about a nasty bear who tricks his friends into helping him to make the filling for his pie and their efforts are not enough. He actually wants to eat THEM in the pie. The funny thing is that even though I had seen the front cover, I didn't click that the bear wanted to eat the other characters until later in the book. I think I was too busy looking at the cute animals to see that they were in the pie on the front cover!

Both my children loved this book and kept wanting me to read it again and again to them. For me, it wasn't one of those books that I instantly fell in love with, but I guess it is the children who are most important - if they love it, then it is a winner.
