Apple Pie ABC by Alison Murray

Reading Level: Ages 3 - 5

Library Lady's dog here.  I saw this alphabet book today and it kept me on the edge of my dog bed! The poor little puppy in the book really wants some apple pie, but his mean human won't let him have any! He even gets scolded when he tries to have a lick of it, like that is something wrong to do. Luckily there is a happy ending.
