Bad Apple and Second Banana terrorize the other food items in the fridge. After a streak of bullying, Good Egg finally confronts the pair and is picked on himself. Taking a different approach, Good Egg decides to invite Bad Apple to play a game of capture the flag with the other produce. Bad Apple is taken by surprise and is very excited to be included by everyone else. In the end, everyone has a good time and the bullying ends.

Good Egg and Bad Apple offers a positive (though not always effective) way to deal with bullies. It also has A LOT of idioms, puns, and other word play. While this word play is fun, the sheer amount of it is a bit overwhelming especially for younger readers where much of it might go over their heads. Upper elementary students or students who are learning English may be a better audience for diving in to the idioms and understanding the fun of the text.

When a puffin named Steve meets another puffin who is also named Steve, the competition is on! One of them hast to be the best, most Stevest Steve, right? This competition quickly escalates and turns into name calling and hurt feelings. Can the Steves work out their differences (or similarities)?

With bold pictures and mounting tension, The Steves will make a great read aloud. Teachers (and parents) will want to read the book before presenting it to kids to make sure the name calling isn’t too much for their kiddos or that it can be thoroughly discussed as a bad choice with kids. Overall, the book is funny and will make kids laugh while realizing somethings are just silly to argue over.
