    This is a reprint of a title originally published by Knopf in 1960. The words and illustrations are delightfully wide-eyed, deranged, and possibly subversive. Apples bite back. The soup talks back! Alligators masquerade as luggage. (Watch out!) Each page posits ‘what if,’ and offers a delightfully absurd response. Some pages rhyme. Some don’t. But there’s a zippy rhythm to the text that makes for good reading aloud. Five to eight year olds who like to laugh will love this one. Young wordsmiths and artists will be eager to create their own ‘what ifs’ and draw them. It’s a book that makes the reader feel energized and want to participate.There's nothing I didn't like about this book. It’s joyous and goofy and the color palette of yellow-orange, turquoise, pink, orange, and green is fully in the spirit of the time of its original publishing date.

    Rather than the exploits of a fanged apple, this is a collection of wacky if-then statements. The counterfactual conditional statements in this book will have elementary students capable of conditional reasoning rolling. I would have preferred a Dracula apple myself.

    Absurdist humor both in text and illustrations that readers of all ages can enjoy!
