Delight in a beautifully realised and very funny exploration of colour, the relationship between different objects and the power of the imagination. Orange Pear Apple Bear is a wonderfully simple and engaging picture book from award-winning author/illustrator Emily Gravett. 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. Perfect for reading out loud to very young children.

About the Author:

Emily Gravett is a graduate of Brighton University and the winner of the Macmillan Prize for Illustration. She burst onto the scene with the startlingly original Wolves, with which she won her first Kate Greenaway Award. Emily won her second for the extraordinary Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears. Some of her other titles include Little Mouse's Big Book of Beasts, Dogs, Monkey and Me, Cave Baby with Julia Donaldson and Tidy. A traveller in her youth, Emily has now settled in Brighton.

From Booklist:

Choose five words; paint pictures for words; mix with charm; create original and imaginative book. Voilà—a picture book that exemplifies simplicity at its most creative and entertaining. The four words of the title, combined in various ways, form a visual tale as a bear juggles, interacts with, and ultimately eats an orange, pear, and apple. Stark white backgrounds set off Gravett's loosely brushed watercolor pictures of animal and fruit, which play off of the staccato words to demonstrate how punctuation and intonation can dramatically alter meanings: Apple, Pear goes with an image of stacked fruit, while Orange Bear shows the animal puzzling over his citrus-hued fur. Though the book's design appears artless, it is quite the opposite, skillfully juxtaposing page layouts to maximize the humor of the wordplay. Ideal for prereaders and helpful to those ready to write stories of their own, this will make children laugh and learn as they follow the bear's antics and chant the rhymed sequences of words. Cummins, Julie
