Ol' Bear wakes one morning with a hankering for Ugly Pie, so he goes on a search from neighbor to neighbor. All he finds are pies that please the eye and . . . ingredients? Wait a second. Maybe it's time for Ol' Bear to start cookin' up something ugly himself! Ol' Bear shares that Ugly Pie with his generous neighbors-and he shares his secret recipe, too, in the back of this book. &nbspLisa Wheeler's story is a joy to read aloud and some parts just beg to be sung.
