About this item
It takes a firm apple to stand up to bullies.When Mac, an apple, meets Will, a worm, they become fast friends, teaching each other games and even finishing each other's sentences. But apples aren't supposed to like worms, and Mac gets called "rotten" and "bad apple." At first, Mac doesn't know what to do—it's never easy standing up to bullies--but after a lonely day without Will, Mac decides he'd rather be a bad apple with Will than a sad apple without."Charming . . . Social norms force Mac and Will apart; surprisingly effective, fruit-related pathos ensues before the two friends decide to buck convention and like whom they like. Who cares what anyone thinks?"—The New York Times
Forging a fast but unusual friendship with Will the worm, Mac, a young apple, is bullied by other apples who say that apples and worms are not supposed to like each other, a situation that compels Mac to stand up for himself.
