While other people's trees are in full bloom, poor Henry's tree never bears a single apple--until he makes a wish with all his heart for just one apple. At last, his tree gets a flower and soon the apple begins to grow--bigger and bigger--until all Henry cares about is guarding his apple. With no friends left, Henry struggles to bring the huge apple to market, but nobody wants to buy it--they don't believe it's real. All seems lost until an insatiable dragon attacks the country. Could Henry's apple save the day?
About the Author
Janosch is one of Germany's best-known artists and children's book authors. He has published over one hundred books for children in over thirty languages, and he now lives on the island of Tenerife.
"I m struck by how Janosch s art reminds me of John Burningham s art (British) in more than one way."-Seven Impossible Things, Julie Danielson" "The art is loose and fiery. Full of motion and an eery calm. But I love how this book breathes."- Design of the Picture Book blog, Carter Higgins ""Just One Apple" is a stunning, deceptively simple wisdom fable for children with striking, contemporary style paintings for illustrations. Brilliant ribbons of colors thread through every page of this story of the dangers of wish fulfillment."- Midwest Book Review "Original, amusing, almost surrealistic."- Vermont Country Sampler, Charles Sutton
