We all know nothing rhymes with orange. But how does that make Orange feel? Well, left out! When a parade of fruit gets together to sing a song about how wonderful they are—and the song happens to rhyme—Orange can't help but feel like it's impossible for him to ever fit in. But when one particularly intuitive Apple notices how Orange is feeling, the entire English language begins to become a bit more inclusive. Beloved author-illustrator Adam Rex has created a hilarious yet poignant parable about feeling left out, celebrating difference, and the irrefutable fact that nothing rhymes with orange.
Zany, clever, and a fantastic read aloud, NOTHING RHYMES WITH ORANGE is Adam Rex at his best. Whimsical, wild rhymes adorn every page as poor Orange watches fruit from Apple to Quince find itself a pair word. "You guys think you'll need me for this book?" asks Orange. His interjections and asides give the book life. I could read this over and over!
