Praise for Each Peach Pear Plum

"'Each Peach Pear Plum. I spy Tom Thumb!' In this engaging, interactive book for the very young, familiar nursery-rhyme characters such as Mother Hubbard and Baby Bunting sneak their way into the gentle drawings. Even young children who might not know all the fairy-tale stars can find them lurking in the cupboard, on the stairs, or deep in the woods. In the happy finale, the whole cast meets up for plum pie in the sun, where the little one on your lap will gleefully find everyone." — Amazon

"One lingers over the pages, not only because the game is fun, but also because they contain action and humor."School Library Journal

"A pleasing marriage of text and art. Children are sure to rise eagerly to the Ahlbergs' cheery and clever challenge." — Harpers
