A huge apple grows in a field in northern Japan. It is too big to harvest, too big to sell and too big to eat… This story was written by Nakano Mayuko for the NPO Tagengo Tadoku.
The entire story is written from the point of view of the apple itself, which was interesting. I also liked how the story was a bit longer, compared to other level 1 texts. It even featured more N5 kanji, of course with furigana.
I thought it was an easy to understand story that was also beautifully illustrated. However, I was a bit confused about the plot. A really big apple that nobody wants to eat? I found that a bit contradictory, haha.
