Each Peach Pear Plum




A beautiful gift edition of this classic and beloved picture book by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

In this book with your little eye, take a look and play I spy - so starts the classic story from best-selling author/illustrator team, Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Each Peach Pear Plum introduces favourite fairy tale characters, such as Tom Thumb and The Three Bears and, with a poem on each page hinting as to what is hiding in the picture, children are encouraged to participate and follow the story themselves.

Now available in digital format, this well-known favourite truly is a modern classic.
