A Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year, 2022

A CBCA Notable Book, 2022

An adorable story about making new friends and finding creative solutions to playground problems.

A pair of pears rocked on a seesaw.
A pair of pears played ping-pong.
A pair of pears rode their tandem bike.
Until one day, someone new wanted
to join their fun.

Big Pear and Little Pear love playing together. But when Orange joins in, their games don't work and Big Pear feels left out. A relatable, hilarious, and kind-hearted tale about navigating friendship when three definitely starts to feel like a crowd! From the author of the CBCA Honour winner, Anemone is not the Enemy.

'This is an entertaining and gently educational tale, perfect for reading aloud with early primary school-aged kids who may be feeling jealousy around newly formed friendships and changing social dynamics.'
-Ellen Cregan, Books + Publishing

'A duo of pears adjusts to a new playmate ... Using humorous wordplay, the text sends the message there's always room for one more, a concept reinforced by the droll, quiet illustrations ... A mindful, whimsical lesson in inclusivity.'
-Kirkus Reviews

' A sweet story, ripe with fruity puns and adorable illustrations that subverts the old adage that 'two's company and three's a crowd.' A simple colour scheme with minimal detail puts the focus on the story, but the black line limbs and facial expressions on the characters add a lot of appeal.'
-Youth Services Book Review
