The Pear Song
A playful, adventurous celebration of colour, fruit and love
In this fairy tale for adults, Disney World employee Gabriel falls in love with the purple Beet Queen, who was born from a pot of beet soup.
When their protest action against the amusement park fails, the Beet Queen follows her father to New York, where he’s gone off in search of the love of his life, a colleague who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center. With highly original, colourful illustrations and a poetic style, The Pear Song is a plea for finding joy in the everyday.
