Editorial Reviews

"Pak's well-executed first appearance as both author and illustrator offers a warm welcome to fall." -The Horn Book, starred review"A gentle, gorgeous welcome to summer's end and fall's beginning, perfect for storytime or one-on-one reading." -School Library Journal"A visual success conjuring up the best about the seasons' changes." -Kirkus Reviews"The focus is on the natural world, but Pak (Flowers Are Calling) celebrates city life, too, with drawings of diverse townspeople . . . that show a rainbow of a community. It's a thoughtful look at the kind of change that unfolds almost imperceptibly." -Publishers Weekly
