The Story of the Red Apple

Jan Lööf, illustrated by Jan Lööf

A modern classic.

Once upon a time there was a man in a striped suit that placed an apple in the window to let it ripen in the sun. But the apple fell onto his great grandmother’s head, who screamed, which scared the cat so much that it ran up the tree … We’re not going to tell you about all the things that went on to happen after that but you can rest assured that the red apple caused a lot of trouble in the little town.

Jan Lööf ’s brilliantly simple story is over 40 years old, but like all real masterpieces, it is timeless.
