||The light-hearted and heart-warming approach never diminishes the seriousness of the dilemmas faced by Jingwen's family. Pie in the Sky is a wonderfully timely book about understanding, tolerance and kindness. * CBCA: Reading Time * This book includes many things that animate my reading palate not least of which are the multiple cake varieties and le Petite Prince (The Little Prince) references. It is a story that examines brotherly love and broken hearts layer by layer then slathers it all with scrumptious messy globs of butter cream; the kind that glues dreams altogether. Sink your teeth into it as soon as you can. * Dims Write Stuff * Looking at immigration, family and grief, this is an exceptionally sweet book, featuring exceptional sweets. Highly recommended for ages 9+. * Readings *
