Having trouble convincing your little ones that too many sweets are a bad thing? Well, this book is for you!
Sweet Dream Pie begins with Pa Brindle begging his wife Ma Brindle to make her “sweet dream pie”. He finally convinces her, but she doesn’t approve. Ma Brindle rolls out the dough, as Willobee Street wakes up. Then she adds everything that she can find that is sweet. Gusts of wind carry powdered sugar away, and even a cocoa powder tornado begins! Ma and Pa Brindle put the pie in the oven and set it to “special”, and the whole street knows what comes next. They pile up in the yard to get slices. Ma Brindle warns against eating more than one piece, but they can’t help themselves. Later that night, all of the people who ate too much of the pie begin to dream bad dreams, and their dreams roll out into the street and terrorize the neighborhood. What will Ma Brindle do?
This is a good read to convince children to cut back on sweets before bedtime, or for anyone who wants to read about the residents of Willobee Street.
