Pie in the Sky, by Remy Lai, is a story told with comic panels as illustrations about a boy whose family immigrates to Australia and he must adjust to a new language and new customs. He gets the idea to honor his father by baking the fancy cakes his father made before he died. Too bad he has to hide this plan from his mother!

Happy Reading!
