March 17, 2008 - Eat pie for St. Pat's Day!

Harold and the Purple Crayon, by Crocket Johnson

The sandy beach reminded Harold of picnics. And the thought of picnics made him hungry. So he laid out a nice simple picnic lunch. There was nothing but pie.

So Harold left a very hungry moose and a deserving porcupine to finish it up.
