An Apple Pie for Dinner



Granny Smith wants to bake a pie, but she only has plums. She sets off to find pie apples and winds up trading her plums for a bag of feathers, the feathers for a bouquet of flowers, the flowers for a gold chain, the chain for a puppy, and the puppy for apples. Through her generous giving to others, she finally finds the apples for her pie, which, of course, she shares with all those who helped her. This adaptation of an English folk tale includes a kid-friendly apple pie recipe. Yum! Illustrated by Carol Baicker-McKee.
