Book summary

The “Potbelly Bakery” will have to close down if customers don’t come in greater number for some sugary pleasures. Julia, Ryan, and their parents will have to move unless Bernadette, a charming neighbour, agrees to help them save their beloved bakery. To do so is quite simple: the old lady must ruin her own pies! Once Bernadette had left her sugar pie baking in the oven too long. According to her, that sugary pleasure was ruined. But according to her grandchildren, who had insisted on tasting it, it was the best pie in the whole World!

Book Excerpt

Julia et Ryan roulent vers la maison de Bernadette, située au bout de leur rue sans issue. Perchée sur le vélo rose bonbon qu’elle a reçu à son anniversaire l’année dernière, Julia surveille son petit frère. Il est installé sur sa bicyclette neuve à deux roues. Il pédale, quelques mètres devant elle, fier comme un paon, même s’il a encore besoin des petites roues d’apui qui servent à stabiliser sa conduite encore incertaine.
— Regarde, Julia ! Bientôt, je n’aurai plus besoin de mes roues de secours !
Julia sourit. Des « roues de secours » ! Ryan la fait bien rire, parfois.
— Continue, Ryan ! Tu es vraiment bon !
