Horn Book Review

Mouse finds an apple, which he quickly buries and keeps secret from the other animals. However, a tree begins to sprout; it grows, flowers, and drops fruit for everyone to enjoy. The secret is revealed: "But sometimes...secrets are even better when you share them." Spare, uncluttered illustrations of tiny animals alongside the growing tree complement this brief, satisfying fable. (c) Copyright 2011.
