Nothing Rhymes with Orange

Author(s): Adam Rex

Rhyming

A Huffington Post Best Book of the Year
 
A perfect laugh-out-loud, read-aloud from New York Times bestselling author Adam Rex
 
We all know nothing rhymes with orange, but how does that make Orange feel? Well, left out, obviously
 
When a fruit parade 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 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.
