Apple Pie ABC

Alison Murray. Disney-Hyperion, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4231-3694-1
A long-eared dog—with a passing resemblance to early versions of Snoopy—longs for his young owner's irresistible apple pie in this ABC book. Red and white letters, reminiscent of toy wood blocks, appear on each page, as the girl happily "bake[s] it," then "dish[es] it out." The expressive hound goes from being "eager for it," to "have to get a lick of it," which results in a gentle scolding before the "quietly determined" puppy devises a scheme for getting his pie. The grainy, retro-style artwork gives the book a deliciously vintage feel, and readers will be glad that perseverance (and pie!) win out over manners. Ages 2–6. (May)
