'In this book with your little eye, take a look and play 'I spy' - so starts the classic story from best-selling author/illustrator team Janet and Allan Ahlberg. A poem on each spread gives the clue as to what is hiding in the picture opposite. Many well-known nursery characters are included so that young children can follow the rhymes and enjoy the story.

Comments about Each Peach Pear Plum:
I think the previous reviewer has got her books mixed up! There is no death at the end of this book, rather, the ending is happy - everyone together sharing plum pie. My one year old loves this book. The illustrations are detailed and colourful! The story is simple to follow, and the rhymes sweet. He loves playing eye spy, to find the characters on each page. A perfect gift for every young child.
Play the game of hide-and-seek with Cinderella, the Three Bears, Jack and Jill, in this cunningly devised rhyming picture book. 'Tom Thumb in the cupboard/ I spy Mother Hubbard...' Can you see her in the picture? (0 - 3 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
