9780399207976: Apple Pigs

A beloved tale of a family finding a very enjoyable way to dispose of surplus apples, reissued to be enjoyed by today’s children

This beautifully illustrated tale of an apple tree that grows too many apples is delightfully told in rhyme. A little girl finds a withered apple tree surrounded by rubbish. To stop the tree being chopped down for firewood, she clears the rubbish to help the poor tree grow. When Spring arrives, the tree bursts into blossom and produces a glut of apples. But as the little girl’s family try to eat, cook and hide the apples in rugs, blankets, wagons, and jugs, the apples continue to grow! There is only one answer: an apple feast! This wonderful tale will give readers an appreciation of nature’s bounty and the importance of sharing. It includes a guide to making your own "apple pig"—a fruit sculpture that looks just like a pig!
