PreS-Gr 2-This Spanish edition of the English original (Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine, 1999) loses a bit of its pun-filled punch textually, but maintains its visual impact. The authors searched through the markets of greater New York for fruits and vegetables that had character, then added eyes, mouths, and noses. Grouped to create highly amusing vignettes and photographed over single-color backgrounds, the fruits and vegetables express the feelings mentioned in the matching text, among them jealousy, timidity, understanding, and love. This is a good book for introducing complex emotions, and the arresting artworkbright, bold, and humorouswill appeal to children and adults alike. Despite the slightly labored translation, it is a sound addition to most library collections and a reasonable purchase for bookstores.Ann Welton, Grant Center for the Expressive Arts, Tacoma, WA
