Nothing Rhymes with Orange
Adam Rex’s new picture book, Nothing Rhymes with Orange, packs a real punch. This is one story you won’t mind reading again and again, and multiple readings will definitely be demanded. Ostensibly a celebratory rhyming song-and-dance about different fruits, the book is really about poor Orange, who feels left out of the whole shebang because as we all know, nothing rhymes with orange. Orange’s dry commentary and delicious asides add a wicked tartness to the story, and the ending is as sweetly silly and absurd as you would expect. Don’t miss this one!
