Available in difference book formats, this simple book featuring an orange, a pear, an apple and a bear is extremely clever. By rearranging just four words, Emily Gravett creates a series of playful images which are a sheer joy - and intensely satisfying. The loose energy of the pencil and watercolour pictures will be irresistible to adults and children alike.
I dont know what it is about this book, but I was enchanted the minute I started reading it. And there is not much to read at all. Everyone joins in, though it is a bit basic for the 4 year old. She still likes the pictures and finds it amusing. Clever and simple - it is pure joy.
