Pie-rats sail the starry night, seeking treasures baked just right. Pie-rats don't want gold doubloons— their bounty comes on forks and spoons.
A band of swashbuckling pie-rats has only one goal: to find dessert! Whether it's banana cream, lemon meringue, apple, or cherry, these ravenous rodents will battle storms and scallywags to find the best pie. But will their adventures reveal that there is more than one way to satisfy a sweet tooth? With rollicking rhyme and lively illustrations, Pie-Rats is a hunger-inducing read-aloud that will have readers begging for another helping.
