The Red Lemon


One of the ten Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2006, chosen by the New York Times, is entitled The Red Lemon. Author and illustrator Bob Staake, has created a charming picture book that reminded me of Dr. Seuss. Told in rhyme, with vivid drawings, the story is about Farmer McPhee and his aversion to the red lemon growing in his all-yellow lemon orchard.Children will delight in this tantalizingly tart tale.-Xochiquetzal
