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

One can only be in awe of the talent of this delightful author and illustrator. Her inspiration for this title came from reading Lynne Truss’ Eats, Shoots and Leaves and with just 4 words she’s created a deliciously simple, yet wonderfully fun juxtaposition of animal and fruit as well as an all-important introduction to the ‘comma’. It’s not just a breathtakingly beautiful book but also fresh, fun and full of joie de vivre. (0-5)

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.

Orange Pear Apple Bear Synopsis

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.
