This picture book, featuring Nikki McClure’s signature paper-cuts, follows the life of an apple and shows the cyclical patterns in nature. In the opening spread, a ripe, red apple (the only colour against the black and white paper-cuts) falls from a tree. A man gathers the apple to take home. His daughter takes the apple to school for lunch, but mistakenly drops it after taking a bite. Left on the ground, we see the apple buried as the seasons change and children come and go on the playground above. On the final spread, we see that the buried apple has produced an apple tree sprout; a beautiful demonstration of a lifecycle through McClure’s signature simple and striking imagery.
