Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
We join a young girl in her appreciation of apples. In one or two simple sentences per page, she describes how a seed becomes a shoot, then finally an apple tree. From blossoms in the spring grow ovaries, which by fall become the delicious fruit she enjoys eating. Möller manipulates shapes cut from prepared papers in ways that create extremely appealing double-page scenes that are, simultaneously, honest descriptions of the apple tree's evolution. The sprigs of pink blossoms with busy bees have an almost Japanese delicacy, while the red-yellow beauties seem heartily, mouth-wateringly robust. 2001, A Michael Neugebauer Book/North-South Books, $13.95 and $13.88. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-This slight picture book about the wonders and development of an apple has not made a good transition from German to English. The writing is stilted and misleading: the pip "wakes up" and is an apple tree in "a few years." The subtitle refers to a moral bit tacked onto the end of the text almost as an afterthought. It's too bad, because the illustrations are fresh and effective. They appear to be done in acrylic with torn-paper collage. Different kinds and colors of apples are beautifully and realistically rendered, as are the crows that come to nibble at them. Close-up cross-sections of the fruit are dramatic and informative. Animals, birds, and insects are shown as it appears and changes. There are so many other good picture books about apples, including Gail Gibbons's The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree (Harcourt, 1984), that this one is unnecessary.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
