From the Publisher:

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 apple?the only splash of color in the otherwise black-and-white illustrations?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 apple's life.

Apple is acclaimed cut-paper artist Nikki McClure'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 McClure's signature style.

Annotation:
With just one word per spread, Nikki McClure's picture book about the life cycle of an apple is striking and to the point. Her signature cut-paper artwork is a crisp black on white with one spot of red, the apple, on each page. Growing on a tree, being picked, enjoyed, and composted to begin all over again, this narrative shares the joys of growing food with children. McClure is also the author of TO MARKET, TO MARKET.

Praise

"The art is gorgeous, the text is one-word-per-page minimal and the "story" is sprinkled with welcome surprises." - Pamela Paul 09/16/2012

"Primitive-looking cut-paper illustrations depict an apple's travels from tree to kitchen to backpack to picnic and eventually into soil, where it takes root as a new seedling." (starred review) 07/15/2012
