Mathieu Lavoie

Dear Librarians,

Toto is a small worm that wants to catch the sole apple in the tree above him. What he lacks in luck he makes up for in creativity and optimism. In the end, he wins, or does he?

Kirkus Reviews calls TOTO'S APPLE "a madcap miniodyssey sure to thrill readers." And Julie Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast said it "made me laugh aloud." I'd love to hear what YOU think.

"A crisply narrated story of hard-won success... Lavoie's art is as dead simple as his writing, and his gouache paintings reduce the story's elements to their bare essentials." —Publishers Weekly
