This is Apple. He’s not a normal, nice kind of apple. Not a peaceful piece of fruit, no siree. He’s rotten to the core.
In this irreverent new book by award-winning author Huw Lewis Jones, a truly terrible piece of fruit is wreaking havoc far beyond the rim of the fruit bowl. Bad Apple is dead set on making life miserable for Pear, Plum, Cat, and Spoon, and it seems like no one will stop him. He pinches, steals, and breaks his way through the kitchen—until he encounters Snake. Could Snake be a match for the most mischievous snack in the house?
Illustrated in a deadpan, painterly style by Ben Sanders, Bad Apple is sure to entertain the entire family.
