Cloudy with a chance of…pie?! An all-new Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs adventure takes foodie fun to--Mars!

Breaking News: Astronauts Land on Mars!

Kate and Henry can hardly believe their eyes. Astronauts have landed on Mars! And their first discovery there? A thick glutinous substance that seems to be falling from the sky. A substance not unlike...pie filling? Could it be? Could it be raining pies on Mars? Suddenly, Mars seems a whole lot more inviting--and delicious!--than it ever has before.

And more will be revealed. Because it just so happens that Grandpa has some very personal experience with these Martians. And, even more importantly, with the pies.

This is book number three in the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Series. Astronauts have landed on Mars and are speculating about what the thick substance falling from the sky could be. The reporter guesses it could be pie. Grandpa goes to sleep and dreams that he goes to Mars and talks to the martians about their pie problem. The solution is to capture the pies in nets, box them up and sell them around the world. Later, when Grandpa wakes up, you are left wondering if it was a dream or real.

The illustrations are colorful and interesting.

This story did not have the same interest level as the first two in this series. The kids are hardly involved. Instead, Grandpa is dreaming and telling the story. Rather than seeing a lot of whole pies, we see lots of goo raining down and sitting on things. Although children may be interested in the story line, this one does not hold the same excitement as the first in the series or even the second. I think leaving the children out of most of the story made a big difference.
