Fancy a slice of cherry pie? Let's get started. . . . What, no bowl? No pie pan? No pot holders?

Join our young baker (and her little dog!) as they travel the United States—from New Hampshire to Hawaii, from Alaska to Texas—in search of the coal, cotton, clay, and granite they need to create all their baking tools.

In a companion to her bestselling How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, two-time Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman takes us on a round-the-U.S.A. journey by riverboat, taxi, train, and plane in a culinary adventure—and a playful celebration of America's natural resources.

About the Author:

MARJORIE PRICEMAN is the author-illustrator of How to Make an Apple Pie and See the Worldand Emeline at the Circus, as well as the illustrator of Cold Snap (written by Eileen Spinelli) andParis in the Spring with Picasso (by Joan Yolleck). She has received two Caldecott Honors for Hot Air!The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride and Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin by Lloyd Moss. She lives in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–4—In this follow-up to How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (Knopf, 1994), a spunky young baker is in the mood for cherry pie. She has the ingredients this time, but she's missing the equipment (bowl, pan, rolling pin, etc.) needed to get the job done. Traveling back and forth across the United States according to instructions that are given recipe style (and can be followed on the endpapers' map), she gathers natural resources from various regions (e.g., cotton from Louisiana to make pot holders) and heads home to manufacture the required objects. Smelting, spinning, weaving, carving, and glass making, the girl works until she has everything ready. The pie is a welcome addition to a July 4th celebration, where floats showcase the places she has visited. Priceman's story is expertly matched to her gouache paintings; loose and sketchy, vivid and childlike, they offer myriad details for each locale. In a school setting, the story is useful for introducing a unit on the United States and for teaching predicting skills. It's also silly enough to circulate just for fun.—Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
