New York Times–bestseller and Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes’s striking text introduces the unique beauty of the fall season. Acclaimed artist Laura Dronzek’s expressive paintings illuminate pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, and busy squirrels. “A picture book to fall for.”—Horn Book

Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek, the award-winning team creators of the acclaimed picture book When Spring Comes, which School Library Journal praised as a “must-have, joyful seasonal title for the youngest listeners,” explore the sounds, sights, smells, and textures of a new season—fall—in this gorgeously illustrated picture book.
