'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:

    The Ahlbergs are clever and talented writers & illustrators and the rhymes here are lots of fun. I say that is is good for both preschoolers and toddlers as I have one of each, and they both enjoy it, although on different levels: Each page has a reference to a famous fairy-tale or nursery rhyme character, such as Cinderella, Robin Hood or Jack and Jill - so, my three year old, to whom I had already read collections of nursery rhymes, had a laugh identifying these characters in a new setting; while, my 1.5 year old, who of course doesn't know all the stories just yet, still likes to listen to this one because of the simple cadence of the rhyming verse.
    The only reasons I thought I would leave off one star is because some parents might appreciate a warning about one of the following content features: (1) The three bears go 'out hunting' clearly carrying guns, including the baby bear (!) - whose gun then accidentally goes off (in the picture), shooting the rope on baby bunting's basket! If you don't want any reference to guns, this page may put you off. And (2) there is a wicked witch, and Robin Hood is pictured trying to shoot her down with his bow and arrow! - however, if you ever read any fairy tales to your children, you will soon discover that you are faced with many scary/distressing scenes, moral dilemmas and battles between good and evil such as these - this little book could be seen as a 'soft' introduction to those tales! (Eg. Stories by the Brothers Grimm are particularly notorious for this!) :)

        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.
