Summary: The back cover explains “Deliciously simple, perfectly fun”. That literally says it all. Emily is a very talented writer and illustrator, who offers quirks and humour in her stories to entertain young minds.

The story is made up of four words (orange, pear, apple, bear) arranged in a variety of  ways to convey different meanings. This book has the most beautiful watercolour sketches, cleverly helping to convey the meanings and for giving the bear his own personality. Together, they create a fun and charming story that will especially appeal to those of us who enjoy the complexities of sentence structure and language, exploring how punctuation and sequence create meaning. Or, you could just read this book to see how cute the bear is.

Emily Gravett has created a collection of books which would make perfect gifts for your children, or nieces and nephews. Her books include Wolves, Monkey and Me, Blue Chameleon and Dogs, just to name a few. Enjoy!
