Ned’s New Home

Kevin Tseng

Apples and apple pies … Ned just loved both. That was until his apple home began to rot and drip apple juice. Finally, Ned had to find a new home, but it wasn’t quite that easy. First Ned tried a pear, but it kept wobbling away. Next, Ned tried a watermelon, but it was too big. When Ned tried the blueberries, they just kept rolling away. The lemon was too sour, and Ned got lost in the green of the kiwi. Finally, Ned found a bunch of juicy red cherries. Each fruit Ned tried just wasn’t the same as the apple he used to live in. He was not ready for the big adventure that would lead to his new home, but he didn’t give up. Ned’s friends would enjoy his new home almost as much as he did.

The colorful watercolor illustrations bring the text to life and small children will delight in the simple story about a worm!
