Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-What should have been a perfect summer for one young boy is ruined when Jeremy Ross moves in and becomes number one on the narrator's enemy list. Fortunately, his father has a secret recipe for a pie that is guaranteed to help get rid of enemies. While Dad works on mixing the ingredients and baking the pie, he explains his son's role in the plan: "-you need to spend a day with your enemy. Even worse, you have to be nice to him." It sounds tough, but the boy decides to give it a try. Predictably, between throwing water balloons at the girls, playing basketball, and hiding out in the tree house, he decides that Jeremy is not so bad after all. There's still the problem of the pie, however. When his father serves up the dessert, the young protagonist decides to warn Jeremy that it is "poisonous or something." However, it seems that both his father and his new friend are just fine, and what's more, the pie is delicious. This is a clever tale with an effective message about how to handle relationships and conflict. King's stylized and humorous illustrations, done in colored pencil and pastel, will work well with a group.

Today Derek Munson came to my kindergarten son's school to do a reading of "Enemy Pie". I attended. Derek was fabulous and engaging. The book was wonderful! My son thought it was the greatest book and on the way home said "that guy is a good author!" He even let the kids MAKE enemy pie! Too fun!!! We came home and immediately bought the book! I only wish we would have purchased an autographed copy befor the reading! Thank you Dered Munson! I can't wait to see what's next!

Life was good, until Jeremy Ross moved into the neighborhood and became enemy number one. Fortunately for this young boy, his dad knows just how to handle enemies...an old secret recipe, Enemy Pie. And while dad does the cooking, our young man must do his part, the hardest part. He has to spend the entire day, being nice and playing with Jeremy. First they rode bikes and bounced on the trampoline. Next they threw water balloons at girls and played some basketball. And towards the end of the day, they went up in the treehouse and played checkers and cards. Finally, dad called and said it was time for pie. What was a guy going to do? He liked Jeremy. They had become friends and were going to play again tomorrow. He definitely didn't want Jeremy eating any Enemy Pie..... Derek Munson has written a charming, amusing story with a subtle lesson that will not be lost on youngsters. His text and humorous dialogue are true to life and kids will really be able to identify with his characters. Tara Calahan King's wonderful, expressive artwork really compliments the story and together they send the important message that the best way to get rid of your enemies, is to make them your friends. Perfect for children 4-8, Enemy Pie is a winner.

This is a wonderful way to give children strategies for overcoming conflicts and making friends. This is also a good story about how fathers are role models for their sons. The lessons contained do not interfere with the telling of the story in any way. Very well-done.

This book is well written with a fabulous message. It's a wonderful book to read aloud and I've read it to classes of children and in bed to my 3-year old and had great success in both situations. The pictures are charming as well and add to the story.

Enemy Pie is a book about how to make enemies your friend.One summer a kid named Jeremy Ross moved into the neighborhood. One personal kid had Jeremy on his first and only enemy list. The reasons were that when the kid struck out in baseball Jeremy would laugh at him. When Jeremy had a party on his trampoline the kid was not invited but his best friend was. One day the kids dad heard about Jermy Ross. So he brought out an old recipe called ENEMY PIE. The adventure goes on with the kid and Jeremy and then something good happens.

I really do recommend this book because it has great illustrations and it also tells you what to do with your enemies. This book is a picture fiction book.

I had the opportunity to hear Derek read his picture book "Enemy Pie" at Borders Storytime. The children in the audience, including myself and my own children--a 6 year old and a 9 year old loved this book. Derek's words are very poetic and his book is entertaining. It's quite a long picture book at 40 pages, but the story moves quickly and covers a lot of ground. I bought Enemy Pie and have enjoyed reading it out loud. I highly recommend it. The illustrations are bright and vivid. I can't wait for Derek's next books which he said are in the beginning stages. Yippee!! :-)

In a simple, fun and charming way the author serves us an intriguing slice of conflict resolution using ingredients of humor and compassion that every child can relate to.
This excellent book is well suited to the Fall when children head back to school and, when encountering new faces, themselves face the sometimes difficult task of assimilating, resolving conflicts and building relationships.
I recommend this easy to read book with its curious and interesting characters to preschoolers through 2nd graders.

Enemy Pie is a delightfully written book on a not often covered subject. The build up in thle plot is so well done, developing the story at just the right pace. The little boy's feelings are easy to identify with.
I really enjoyed the way this book is illustrated, capturing the mood of the story.
I will be donating a copy of "Enemy Pie" to my grandchildren's school library.
Thank you Derek Munson and Tara Calahan King for such a great contribution to childrens literature.
