Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Little Ellie the elephant is the only kid at the grown-up party. And when she can't reach the irresistible table of desserts, she wonders why everything is always for big people. Just then, Ellie hears a curious noise coming from a mouse hole in the kitchen — a chef mouse is baking a tiny pie in front of a live TV audience of mice! As Ellie observes the mouses fantastical confectionary demonstrations, she learns that if you are big enough to eat dessert, then you can make it too!

Mark Bailey and Michael Oatman's amiable writing cleverly introduces children to the five senses while playing with the notion of size, pairing perfectly with Edward Hemingway's endearing and nostalgic illustrations. Children drawn to animals and sweet treats will be encouraged to call back the text as it is read aloud, and parents will be delighted to see a delicious recipe contributed by celebrated chef, Alice Waters!

Review:

“This beautifully illustrated picture book is delightful. Readers will linger over the vibrant paintings that fill each page to soak in every detail.” School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Lively picture book featuring elephants and mice, a tiny apple pie, and a recipe contributed by Alice Waters.

Synopsis:

Little Ellie the elephant is the only kid at a grown-up party. No one is paying any attention to poor Ellie, and she cant reach the food! Why must everything be for big people?

Then to Ellie's surprise, she discovers a little chef mouse inside a hole in the wall, and he's filming a cooking show! Ellie can see that his sharp senses are key ingredients for a successful tiny pie. Will this be the perfect snack that's just her size?

As an added treat, Alice Waters has contributed a delicious tiny apple pie recipe perfect for little hands (and big appetites)!
