About this title

Synopsis:

In the 1660s, English schoolchildren first met an apple pie called A. In simple, educational verse, they also met 26 other alphabetical characters who all wanted a piece of A! B bit it, J jumped for it, N nodded at it, and T took it! Creative Editions is pleased to re-introduce this classic nursery rhyme to a new generation. With lighthearted illustrations by Etienne Delessert that are sure to captivate young learners, A Was an Apple Pie is an endless slice of reading fun!

Educating young children while keeping them fully engaged can be a challenge. But teachers and parents alike will find that this lively picture book will do just that. In typical Delessert fashion, the book's illustrations refuse to settle for the ordinary. Playful creatures wear shirts bearing each respective letter of the alphabet, and their delightfully rendered shenanigans in trying to keep the piece of apple pie to themselves give the story a fun narrative arc. Each spread features a pleasing combination of color, characters, and movement that will enchant readers of all ages.

With almost 100 children's books to his credit, artist and author Etienne Delessert has established a reputation as one of the fathers of modern children's picture books. Through such books as Dance!, I Hate to Read!, The Seven Dwarfs, and Who Killed Cock Robin?, he has won gold medals from the Society of Illustrators and twice garnered the prestigious Graphics Prize from the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
