Nice Bad Apple Mention in The School Library Journal

Here is the part about Bad Apple:

I think we have plenty of mismatched friend picture books out there but I’ll admit that I sometimes have a problem with titles where a predator is best friends with their food source.  It always makes me think of thatFashion Kitty moment where FK mentions that her cat family has a pet mouse, which would be the human equivalent of have a chocolate cake as a pet. “I love you, but I wish I could eat you.”  That’s part of the reason why I was so pleased to see Bad Apple: A Tale of Friendship by Edward Hemingway.  It’s a mismatched friend tale, sure, but not in a predator/prey way . . . or is it?  The story concentrates on Mac (smart name) an apple who befriends Will, the worm in his head.  Unfortunately apples with worms don’t make for the most popular fruits, and Mac is quickly shunned as “rotten”.  It’s cute.  Sort of a metaphor, I suppose.  Worth checking out.
