Three Pears and a Unicorn

The relationship between the creative imagination and the real world with all its limitations is fraught with tension, as Eviatar discovers. He draws three pears on a piece of paper, but reality quickly rears its head and people demand that he add more details. Three pears, they say, can’t just float in empty space, not even in a picture. But where will all these demands end? Where will there be space for Eviatar’s imagination if his picture matches reality perfectly? What will be the fate of unicorns, which just happen not to exist? And what do the three pears think about this?

Accompanied by Tamara Rickman’s unique illustrations, Nurit Zarchi examines these questions with the humor and marvelous poetic style which have made her books a source of pleasure for generations of parents and children.
