Book Tour & Prize Pack Giveaway: Pie and Other Brilliant Ideas by Karen Pokras Toz

My middle daughter jumped at the chance to read and review Pie and Other Brilliant Ideas by Karen Pokras Toz with me.  We read it together over a winter break afternoon--and will be sharing our review later this month.   Check out some of the other blogs on the book's tour and don't forget to enter to win an audio book of Millicent Marie is not my Name (the next book on my daughter's reading list!) and a ballet themed charm bracelet. 

About Pie and Other Brilliant Ideas

From the Award Winning Author of Millicent Marie is Not My Name

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. Instead, 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.
