Anne Hunter grew up in South Florida and now lives with her family in the hills of rural Vermont where she can hear the crickets, who sing with the frogs, who listen to the distant hoot of an owl. Anne is known for watching the squirrels, listening to the insects and writing about the natural world around us. She has written and illustrated many children’s books, including Possum’s Harvest Moon, which reviewers described as "a sensational selection," with illustrations that are "beautifully rendered" and have "a hushed mystery." http://www.annehunterstudio.com/
Ages 3^-6. Hunter's enchanting debut combines bewitching illustrations and a magical story that celebrates the beauty of autumn. As Possum gazes at a splendid full moon one autumn evening, he is inspired to throw a party. He hurries off to invite his friends to his Harvest Soiree, but it seems everyone is too busy getting ready for the long winter to come: the mice are gathering seeds, the raccoon is eating fish to fatten up, and the frogs are preparing to go underground for their hibernation. Dejected, Possum sits alone in his party hat. Then the moon begins to work its magic, and every creature pauses to admire its beauty. Suddenly, Possum is surrounded by friends, who, like all good guests, bring munchies and music and eat and dance until the moon sinks low and it's time to go home for winter's long sleep. Possum's secret world is beautifully rendered in subtle earth tones and exquisitely detailed with delicate pen-and-ink line work. The artwork has great child appeal, and little ones will love the wonderful simplicity of the story, which will not only be great for lap sharing but also complement a study of the seasons.
