Cath Carroll, the charming proprietor at Celebrate Picture Books, reminded me that today is National Pie Day.
In honor of this occasion, I give you a character from my new picture book, Everybody’s Favorite Book: Behold Everybody’s Favorite Villain, Corky!
Corky, in case you don’t know, is part robot, part dragon, and part pirate, making him a Robo-Dragon Pie.
Corky is holiday-adjacent.
Heck, Corky should be the holiday’s mascot.
So be sure to cut yourself an extra wide slice of the sweet stuff today. Let’s make Corky proud.

Well, Corky is just adorable, Mike. Happy Pie Day!
And to you, too, my friend!
What a great character and illustration!
Isn’t Corky awesome? He was drawn by the marvelous Claire Almon.
He has a slice of pie for the end of his tail!!! Brilliant! D
The character design credit all goes to the book’s peerless illustrator, Claire Almon.
Bravo, Claire! 😀
Until Claire drew him, I had no idea what a Robo-Dragon Pie looked like.
Where is the pirate part? Or is it like pie-rate?
There ya go!
The illustrations along with the text are what make this a fun fun favorite book. And who doesn’t like PIE?
Who doesn’t like pie, Commies, that’s who.
My favorite is Coconut Cream… I will have a slice just for you!! 😉
