Description

An orange, a pear, an apple ? and a bear. Deliciously simple. Perfectly fun.


The utter simplicity of this beautiful picture book is breathtaking. 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.

Awards

Shortlisted for Kate Greenaway Medal 2007.
