Book Dads, November 30, 2009 (view all comments by Book Dads)
The young boy in this story has an enemy, a number-one enemy, a very best enemy. That enemy is Jeremy Ross, who lives down the street and didn’t invite a certain someone to his birthday party. Luckily, this boy’s dad has a plan for dealing with enemies: bake them an enemy pie. While Dad bakes the enemy pie – sure to be an awful and disgusting thing – according to his secret recipe, he explains his son’s part in the plan. He must spend the entire day playing with Jeremy and even be nice to him. To the surprise of both boys, after a day playing together they are feeling much more friendly. But what will happen when it’s time to serve Jeremy the pie?

Enemy Pie is a book that teaches about conflict resolution and seeing enemies in a new light, without being overbearingly preachy or losing its sense of humor. The clever dad in this story provides his son with a valuable lesson without lecturing to him, and instead arranges matters so that his son can learn on his own. In the same way, sharing this book with children will encourage them to reflect upon the ideas of making friends and making enemies, and consider for themselves the merits of baking an enemy pie.
