Posy is moving. She doesn't want to pack and she definitely doesn't want to say "good-bye." In an attempt to cheer themselves up, Posy and her friends bake a pie. Pie is so good and so sweet...if they can't say good-bye, they could have a good-pie party instead. A sweet book about good friends and moving away, with lovely, expressive illustrations. The perfect going away gift- of you pair it with a pie! — Marika McCoola
Posy, Megan, and Mae have always been the best of friends -- but now Posy has to move away. Only their favorite activity can comfort the girls: baking pie! And when they realize they can host a good-pie party instead of a good-bye party, the sad situation becomes a sweet gathering for their entire community. THE GOOD-PIE PARTY celebrates good friends, good memories, and the joy of the just-right good-byes.
