Booklist - 07/01/2017 As a chorusing parade of diverse fruits marches past (“Hit the beach in your cabana / With a peach or a banana”), an orange stands by, waiting diffidently for a call. But without a rhyme of its own, will Orange ever get a turn to shine? When the parade is joined by a certain philosopher whose name rhymes with peachy, and a rocking dance concert begins, the shriveled orange at last retreats to its own lonely, undecorated spread. But wait! In marches the apple, trailed by the rest, chanting “It’s the orange. He’s really smorange.” What does that mean? “Totally awesome in every way,” of course. Rex draws expressive faces and stick limbs on photographed images of luscious-looking produce, and squeezes out even more visual energy by choosing a big, casual, hand-lettered style of type for the jingles. Cheers for not only nutrition but for thinking outside the bowl to include the unfairly marginalized: “They’re healthy happy colorful and cute! / Fruit fruit fruit fruit fruit fruit fruit!” - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
