About the Author:

Cynthia Rylant is the acclaimed author of more than eighty books for young people, including the novel Missing May, which received the John Newbery Medal. She lives on an island in Puget Sound, Washington.

Jill Kastner is the illustrator of many books for children, including The Waterfall and her own Barnyard Big Top and Snake Hunt. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, she lives in Weehawken, New Jersey.

From Booklist:

Ages 4-7. "In November, the earth is growing quiet. It is making its bed, a winter bed for flowers and small creatures. The bed is white and silent, and much life can hide beneath its blankets." Poetic language and lovely oil paintings evoke the traditional and seasonal activities that occur in November. Families gather around the table for a Thanksgiving feast, cats snuggle together in the corner of the barn, "staying birds" bid farewell to "leaving birds" beginning their long journeys. Rylant's words are simple but evocative and filled with wonderful sensory images, similes, and metaphors: the bare November trees are "all sticks and bones . . . spreading their arms like dancers." The smell of November food "is an orange smell. A squash and a pumpkin smell." The verbal images are splendidly captured in Kastner's soft-edged, double-spread paintings, which are rendered in a palette of warm autumn colors and sepia tones. The rich illustrations, done in a painterly style with obvious brushstrokes and texture built up from thick layers of oil paint, are a perfect match for the text. This handsome book is sure to become a new fall favorite. Lauren Peterson
