Product Description

Author: Idries Shah; Illustrated by Rose Mary Santiago 
Publisher: Hoopoe Books (2005) 
Pages: 31 Binding: Paperback 

The cumulative tale of a womans efforts to retrieve an apple from a hole in the ground. Children will enjoy learning the highly predictable lines by heart. But when a surprise event changes the direction of the tale, their expectations will be jolted in a most amusing way, and they will have learned its valuable lessons about the nature of problem solving and discovery. Rose Mary Santiago’s striking illustrations evoke the story’s origins and, at the same time, add a uniquely playful atmosphere to this funny tale.

“Its pleasantly repetitive language makes it an ideal tool for developing reading readiness and beginning reading skills.” —Denise Nessel, Ph.D., National Urban Alliance for Effective Education “... the folk art illustrations are boldly attractive ... striking pictures of golden hills, brilliant blue skies, and the woman’s Middle Eastern dress ...” —School Library Journal
