This stunning book from bestselling author Lois Ehlert features color concepts, backyard natural history, vibrant collage illustrations, and, best of all, a recipe for making cherry pie. Yum!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. In this well-designed picture book, an unseen child wonders about what his father calls the pie tree. Through dialogue, the child observes the tree; in the summer it bears fruit: cherries for the birds and raccoons and also for pie (recipe included). The main text, short and well suited to reading aloud, appears throughout the book in large, white letters that show up well against the background colors. In the first half of the book, a few lines of poetry printed in small type appear on each spread, commenting on the child's observations and always ending with, But no pie. With bright colors and playful touches such as holes on the cover art that represent steam holes in a pie's crust, the book has an inviting look that makes its natural history and cooking lessons more appealing. The vibrant collage illustrations, made with an eclectic combination of materials--from paint and handmade papers to sheet metal, wires, and tree branches--celebrate the colors and simplified shapes of birds, insects, the cherry tree, and, yes, kitchen implements. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Keenly aware of the cycles of the natural world, Ehlert (Waiting for Wings) focuses her eye for vibrant hues and her ear for fascinating rhythms on a cherry tree and its many fruitful characteristics. An unseen child narrator is dubious when Dad says that the large tree in the family's yard is "a pie tree." ("I've never seen pie growing on trees. Wouldn't that be something?") But as the seasons pass, the child observes a bustle of activity in the tree at every turn: honeybees buzz around flowery cherry blossoms, birds nest in the branches, caterpillars hatch from chrysalises-and, finally, the red fruit ripens, attracting birds and other al fresco diners ("It's a cherry feast!"). By book's end, Ehlert moves from the outdoors in, depicting how the family harvests and prepares the cherries for a luscious pie (measuring out ingredients, which add up to a complete recipe-except for the crust). In this clever blend of field guide, artist's notebook and cookbook, the author/illustrator creates a series of intriguing seek-and-find collages composed of rich acrylics and pastels, cut, handmade papers and, yes, real cherry tree branches. Throughout, an economy of words and the narrator's chipper tone keep Ehlert's vision on track. Extending the basic elements of the story, she challenges readers to locate various creatures or objects on each page, prompted by small type that follows the pattern, "I see.... But no pie." All in all, a delicious outing. Ages 3-7. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
