Pie Noon

You shall not steal. Unless you come
across a warm apple pie and you’re really
The mole walks past the bakery, suddenly feeling
very peckish. What is that lovely smell? The inevitable
happens: our friend steals a pie cooling off on the
windowsill. But what was supposed to be a tasty treat,
soon turns sour. Can a mole outrun his own conscience?
We first met the peckish mole in the award-winning
picture book Knock on Wood. In this standalone sequel,
the mole encounters irresistible temptation, and faces
a dilemma he needs to solve – ideally before the pie
goes cold. Cold pie isn’t as tasty as warm pie. Everybody
knows that.
