Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring.

Superbly illustrated by the late Janet Ahlberg and written by husband Allan, 'Each Peach Pear Plum' has rhymed text that, together with the illustrations, invites readers to play the game of 'I spy' with a variety of folklore characters, who each move on from their hidden spots in one illustration to feature in the next one. Each Peach Pear Plum is a timeless picture book classic from the bestselling illustrator/author team Janet and Allan Ahlberg, creators of Peepo!

It’s a marvellous way to introduce your child to different characters and of course to introduce them to the game of eye spy - a central feature to the book.

There is also Baby Bunting featured with the three bears out hunting, Bo-Peep surreptitiously watching Baby Bunting fast asleep, Jack and Jill with Bo-Peep up the hill looking for them and I guess you will quickly realise where that pair are and the Wicked Witch with Jack and Jill in the ditch. From the three bears to Robin Hood, little ones and grown ups can have a fantastic story time playing "I spy" looking for familiar fairy tale characters and following the brilliant rhyming text.Other hidden characters are Tom Thumb among the trees, 'Each Peach Pear Plum/I spy Tom Thumb' so you can perhaps guess where he was hiding; Cinderella in the cellar. This is an absolute classic, and I'd be surprised if there's anyone in English-speaking countries, at least, who hasn't heard of it, read it and loved it.

This familiar rhyme has been given the brilliant Ahlbreg treatment to which no young child can fail to respond. Lovely for reading to very young children and getting them to spot the character, and I'm sure that in years to come it'll also be a good aid to learning to read.One of the first books I've bought for my son - the illustrations are very detailed and charming, while I like the board book version, as there's less chance of it being ripped by an over-enthusiastic baby! You’ll also be able to utilize my library for looking up titles to see whether the book you’re thinking about reading next has any objectionable content or not.

Mother Hubbard spies Cinderella, Cinderella spies The Three Little Bears, The Three Little Bears spy Baby Bunting, and so on and so forth. Chosen as one of our February selections over in The Picture-Book Club to which I belong, where our theme was "Fractured Nursery Rhymes," Each Peach Pear Plum is only nominally related to the world of nursery rhymes, being more of a rhyming game-book than anything else. In a clear reference to the Cold War, the Bears – a metaphor for the Soviet Union – are always there in the background, and Janet Ahlberg’s illustration of the Wicked Witch could not resemble Margaret Thatcher more clearly if it were a photograph.Look out for these other classics by Allan Ahlberg:Burglar Bill; Cops and Robbers; The Baby's Catalogue; The One and Only Two Heads; Son of a Gun; The Little Worm Book; Two Wheels Two Heads; Funny Bones; A Pair of Sinners; Happy Families; Peepo!
