    more from this reviewer

    a great poetry collection for readers young and old

    "I am not thin, but I am beautiful

    When

    no

    one

    is

    looking, I steal tubs of butter off the table.

    I take them to the basement to eat in private.

    Once I ate a PIE."

    Once I Ate a Pie (2006) is a collection of poems written by Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan with illustrations by Katy Schneider.

    In this delightful collection thirteen dogs tell all about everything from being small, barking, to "borrowing" bread from the table. The poems fill the page in large, easy to read print that bends and dips in interesting directions to draw reads in.

    Schneider's illustrations, especially Mr. Beefy (who once ate a pie) shown on the cover, bring these many and varied dogs to life.

    Once I Ate a Pie is a great poetry collection for readers young and old. The poems are endearing and funny but also subtle for older readers. The writing is clear and easy to follow with straightforward wording. Every time I pick up this collection, I find something else to love.

    Perhaps our favorite read-aloud book

    We have read our share pf books aloud, from Goodnight Moon to Doctor Dolittle to Flying Solo, and this one just has a special place in our hearts. It is fun to read, and apparently fun to listen to. I hope it comes out for the nook so I could always have a copy at hand to read to the uninitiated.

    For Dog Lovers

    This book is an excellent bedtime book for young children. If you & your little one love dogs, you will enjoy the illustrations and the way the author captures the descriptive sense of the dogs.

    once elementary students loved a book

    The students at my school Loved this book. Even those students who do not own a dog shared stories about other dogs they have encountered. I was pleased at the enthusiastic reception from the students.

    sure to be a favorite!

    My son just got this book as a gift for his third birthday. It is already a household favorite. We all smile and laugh - it's great to have a book even us parents can enjoy (especially since we must read it EVERY night (sometimes more than once!). Highly recommended, especially for 'dog people!'
