I have to admit, it was the cute squirrel on the cover that got me to pick up this book. And the collage style in which it is illustrated. When I opened the book I wasn't disappointed. (see, you can judge a book by its cover!). The gorgeous illustrations of Mark Herald are accompanied by beautiful prose from author Nicola Davies. This is a book to dip into for inspiration and connection to the seasons.
Complete with recipes and activities based around each of the seasons this is a great book to have on your shelves at home. Especially for those readers in the northern hemisphere. Now if only there was a similar book for us antipodeans! Leave me a comment if you know of one.
