Comments about Each Peach Pear Plum:
The story, illustrations and writing style are all top notch. A very enjoyable and heartwarming read. However, although it is aimed at very young readers, the ending may be quite upsetting as the mother who cares for the child from baby to man dies at the end. Although hope shines though when we see the man has a baby daughter to return to and carry on his mother's sweet song of love to, it is still emotion heavy.
