Jonathan and Martha

Publisher: Phaidon

Jonathan is a lonely worm who lives on the left side of the tree. He is unaware that Martha, another lonely worm, lives on the right side of the tree. Then one day a juicy pear falls from the tree, and life will never seem lonely again…

This beautiful book about friendship and sharing is a joy to share and read aloud. The sturdy pages are filled with colour, and there is the occasional flap to peek under. It cannot fail to delight very young children and indeed adults too!
