Apple Grumble (Bad Apple)

Huw Lewis Jones, Ben Sanders


The second title in the laugh-out-loud series of picture books starring Bad Apple, a truly terrible piece of fruit

See Inside


Bad Apple is back and grumpier than ever after his run-in with Snake, who graciously spat him out with just a warning. Granny Smith and her posse of golden apples step in to teach him a lesson. But Bad Apple stoops to a new low and seals them up in a delicious apple crumble...

In the second instalment of Huw Lewis Jones's hilarious new series of picture books, a truly terrible piece of fruit is once more wreaking havoc far beyond the rim of the fruit bowl. Bad Apple’s behaviour is so outrageous, even his own Granny Smith gangs up on him. Illustrated in a deadpan, painterly style by Ben Sanders, Apple Grumble will entertain the entire family.
