Allan taught before becoming a full-time writer and Janet studied graphic design before becoming an illustrator. EACH PEACH PEAR PLUM and THE JOLLY CHRISTMAS POSTMAN won Kate Greenaway Medals and PEEPO! won Parents Magazine's Best Books For Babies Award.
    Review text
    The Ahlberg penchant for playing with nursery characters (Jeremiah in the Dark Woods, 1978) has issue this time in a more traditional, pastoral-pretty nursery book. `Each Peach Pear Plum/ I spy Tom Thumb,` reads the first couplet (of what was originally a counting-out rhyme), while opposite Tom sits half-hidden in a tree; `Tom Thumb in the cupboard/ I spy Mother Hubbard` shows him in plain sight and - look sharp! - only her posterior, looming in the picture's corner. And so it goes, with a new character named - and cleverly half-concealed - at each of the openings. Youngsters will enjoy spying them out and appreciate their comical faces until at the finale - `Plum Pie in the sun/ I spy. . . EVERYONE!` - they all spring out from concealment and sit down to a picnic feast. Once you've seen it, true, there are no surprises but, for the very young, there's another sort of satisfaction from knowing what's coming next. (Kirkus Reviews)
