More Pies!

Front Cover
Scholastic Canada, 2002 - Canadian juvenile fiction - 26 pages
Just how many pies can Samuel eat before he turns green? Samuel wakes up hungry, and it seems that nothing can satisfy him. For breakfast he eats huge bowls of cereal, milk shakes, stacks of pancakes and two fried chickens, but it's not enough -- he is still STARVING! Luckily, there's a pie eating contest in the park, where Samuel eats not one, not two, but SIX pies -- CHUKA CHUKA CHOMP! To everyone's surprise, he wins the contest without turning green, purple, or blue. But guess what his mother is making for lunch... Canada's favourite storyteller, Robert Munsch, reads this delightful tale of one hungry boy and a whole lot of pies. The reusable, clear vinyl carrying case keeps the cassette and book neatly stored and features a re-fastenable snap on the back for easy use.
