The Lovereading4Kids comment

Emily Gravett was selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators in 2008. Shortlisted for the Greenaway Award 2007.

Judges' comment:

It is so difficult to find very good books for the very young and this deceptively straightforward book fulfils this need with great aplomb. From its audaciously simple premise it exposes the youngest readers to real artistic skill, humour, the use of punctuation and healthy eating in one short picture book. Her still lifes of the fruit are beautiful, her use of white space inspired. An instant classic which works on every level.

Synopsis

Orange Pear Apple Bear by Emily Gravett

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.

Emily Gravett is an author/illustrator of exceptional talent. Twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, her sharp wit and seemingly effortless drawing have created such brilliant picture books as Wolves, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg.
