Children's LiteraturePepo and Lolo are friends and friends help each other. Out for a stroll, they spy a beautiful red apple hanging from a tree. Neither is tall enough to reach the apple, but working together they hatch a plan that succeeds in bringing down the apple. Unfortunately, it falls right on Pepo's head, and when it hits the ground the apple splits in half—perfect for the friends to share. The final spread shows the two absolutely satisfied with their delicious snack. Keep your eyes on the ants who tell their own story and also end up as a very happy trio. The simple illustrations, the easy-to-understand story and the humor in both text and illustrations make for a winning combination. Look for other adventures of this duo in these super-sturdy picture books. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 1 to 3.
