The Apple Pie That Papa Baked

by

The Apple Pie That Papa Baked Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Apple follows the life of an apple throughout the year, demonstrating the cyclical patterns in nature. The youngest readers will delight in following the journey of the bright red appleandmdash;the only splash of color in the otherwise black-and-white illustrationsandmdash;as it travels from tree, to harvest, to snack, to compost, and finally to sprout. A single word complements each illustration, urging early readers to reflect on each stage in the appleandrsquo;s life.

Apple is acclaimed cut-paper artist Nikki McClureandrsquo;s very first book, originally self-published and sold in a limited edition of just 200 copies. Now, 16 years later, it is available in wide release, and fans will relish the chance to own the book that launched McClureandrsquo;s signature style.

Praise for Apple

STARRED REVIEW

andquot;Run your fingers across this satisfyingly square bookandrsquo;s cover and feel the subtle, smooth outlines of a ripe apple and simple letters. Youandrsquo;ll immediately sense the solid, soothing storytelling at work inside, achieved through astute manipulations of paper.andquot;

andmdash;Kirkus Reviews, starred review

andquot;The art is gorgeous, the text is one-word-per-page minimal and the andldquo;storyandrdquo; is sprinkled with welcome surprises.andquot;

andmdash;The New York Times Book Review

andquot;The emphasis on the cycle of life makes this a useful classroom and library addition.andquot;

Review:

"Thompson (Polar Bear Night) and Bean (At Night, reviewed above) cook up a delicious homage to vintage children's books. Describing the eponymous pie, the author replicates with natural grace the cumulative structure and rhythm of 'The House That Jack Built' — 'This is the tree, crooked and strong,/ that grew the apples, juicy and red,/ that went in the pie, warm and sweet,/ that Papa baked.' Bean — who names his influences as Virginia Lee Burton and Wanda Gg — unfolds the action on a ramshackle farm, limiting his palette to three colors, black, ochre and a splash of red. Visual excitement comes from the textures of rough bark and rolling hills. The farmer father, his daughter with her tight braids and feedsack dress, and their farm look a lot like renderings from WPA-era woodcuts and lithographs. The family livestock and lean black cat peer hopefully through the window as Papa and daughter peel apples into a pie plate. All the characters, human and animal, appear in silhouette at sunset in a resounding finale: 'This is the world,/ blooming with life,/ that spins with the sun, fiery and bright,/ that lights the sky, wide and fair....' The last page indicates an unexpected guest dropping by for the last piece of pie. This tribute to the artists of an earlier age should take its place among bedtime favorites; if it persuades families to explore picture book classics, so much the better. Ages 5-up."

Synopsis:

In this lovely valentine of a book, Julie Paschkis offers young readers a glimpse of the extraordinary world that can be hidden in the simplest of things. Alfonso loves his colorful, magical existence. He also loves the brilliant, beautiful Ida. But Ida, nose in a book, just doesnand#8217;t seem to notice. Can he win her heart with a cake of his own creation if the salt is gathered from the deep blue ocean, the butter from the summer sun, and flour like snowflakes from a night sky? An exquisitely illustrated story about imagination for children, but also a wonderful gift for lovestruck adults. (A treasured family recipe for apple cake included!)
