What Our Readers Are Saying

The Shared Dog book touches the heart of anyone who has ever owned and loved a dog. The joy of experiencing the unconditional love of a dog is held tenderly in ones heart with the pain that comes when it's time to say goodbye. I loved this book and look forward to reading The Lost Recipe.

Who Like Green Pancakes? The title and cover had me thinking this book was going to be about experiments in the kitchen, but was even more pleased to learn it's about a young girl, her father, and most prominently featured, a busy mom who juggles home life with a demanding job as a nurse in a hospital children's ward. OMG...so fun, touching, and memorable are the adventures Glo (the nurse) experiences with her patients and family. "Wow, wow, wow!" I thought over and over reading from one situation to another. Helping young children understand more about the challenges and rewards of their working parents is a main theme of this beautiful tale, as is the chance to expose readers young and old to the goings on of time spent in a hospital and the caring and creative nurses who are such a vital part of it. Another A+ read from Brandy Pie Books. Thank you!

Guiding Perspectives

"3 to 100"

Three-year olds have already begun trying to figure out the reasons for everything. If we live to 100, we will still be doing this. Our stories have something for the head and heart of any age.

Invisible Hand

Our books are the result of the self-guided labors of many, combined by The Invisible Hand that guides a voluntary marketplace.

Pots & Pans

Small children would rather play with the stuff in your kitchen cupboard than a toy. Ours are the “pots and pans” stories of living.
