---- The Quill and Quire starred review
"Sharon Jennings has proved in five previous books that she knows how to tell a straightforward story that nevertheless has a satisfying twist at the end; she does it again in her charming new picture book the Bye-Bye Pie. . . Turning an incident from normal family life into a story where a five-year-old has an important moment of insight is not easy. Jennings, helped by illustrator Ruth Ohi's energetic preschoolers, has created a story that is satisfying on several levels."
