Well I love pie and hopefully your kids will too, because my latest middle grade book, coming out in just a few weeks is about pie ... and ballet ... with a smattering of Russian history. Strange combo, I know, but it's getting some nice early reviews:
A.B. Shepherd, author of Lifeboat
“Karen Pokras Toz has a hit on her hands again with her tale of a little girl who wants to dance, and the vivid memories of a former Soviet Union ballerina. The story will grab you from page one, and keep you mesmerized until the last page.” – Kristy K. James, author of Enza
“The story will take the reader on a journey through time to a place that was different to how we live today, and gives a history lesson in a positive way that will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. This book is a must have for every young girls bookshelf.” –Jane Anne Linsdell, Lindsay and Jane’s Views and Reviews
ABOUT PIE AND OTHER BRILLIANT IDEAS:
Ballet and baking pies – these are two of twelve year old Georgie Harris’ favorite things. When her parents decide to move closer to her grandmother’s nursing home, Georgie quickly learns the bad news: dance lessons are too expensive in this new town.
Georgie spends most of her time baking pies to bring to her grandmother at the Willow Lakes Nursing Home. There she meets Eve, who inspires Georgie with stories of having danced with a world famous Russian ballerina many years ago.
As Georgie and Eve’s friendship evolves, their tales intertwine in this feel good story showing dreams really can come true.
