When Grandma announces that she is going to Greenland for a year, her family plans a surprise party. Joey confidently helps out cooking, cleaning, and making gifts. "You're too little to help," he tells his brother Alfie. But it is Alfie who comes to Joey's rescue when the dessert meets with an unfortunate accident. And Joey learns that sometimes a family's secret recipe contains the ingredients for togetherness, not just pie.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this wonderful picture book, Sharon Jennings reminds us again of the agony of having a younger sibling . . . The illustrations by Ruth Ohi join with the text to make a seamless whole, a delightful story to laugh about and an opportunity for families to talk about how young brothers and sisters can be a part of celebrations."
---- Resource Links

"Placing her figures in brightly lit, comfortably rumpled settings, Ohi expertly captures Joey's superior, big-brother expression."
---- Booklist

" . . . a plot as fresh and entertaining as the frizzy blonde grandmother. And the pictures are perfect."
---- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"The young protagonist in this wonderful story is able to see through the anguish of shattered expectations to the creative possibilities beyond. . . Ruth Ohi's superb illustrations complement the text perfectly, adding many extra touches of humour. . . The final delight is the recipe for Bye-Bye Pie make or buy a chocolate pecan pie and "let the pie go splat in a mixing bowl."
---- 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."
---- City Parent
