When we’re little, it always feels like grown-ups are having all the fun.

In Mark Bailey and Michael Oatman’s new picture book TINY PIE, with whimsical illustrations by Edward Hemingway, little Ellie the elephant knows all about that feeling. The only kid at her parents’ “grown-up” party, she feels unwanted and is told to keep out of the way. But worst of all, she’s hungry and can’t reach the food because let’s face it – everything’s made for grown-ups. Or is it?

To her astonishment, Ellie discovers a cooking show put on by mice in the hole of her kitchen wall, and learns that “if you’re big enough to eat dessert, then you can make it too!”

TINY PIE introduces kids to the five senses while playing with the notion of size, as Ellie watches the tiny mouse make a warm, fragrant, yummy, tiny pie. It’s a story that will make children feel great about being a kid and what they can achieve! Sure they’re tiny compared to “grown-ups,” but that doesn’t matter because guess what – you don’t have to be big to have fun! Parties (and party food!) are for everyone and even the tiniest of the bunch can bake pie—all that’s needed are good friends and family to help.
