Our romantic leads meet, court, propose, and wed, then honeymoon to London to visit the Queen. Careful readers will notice the little mouse (sometimes obvious, sometimes hiding) in every illustration.

Pamela Duncan Edwards (author) Sylvie Daigneault (illustrator)

Set against the backdrop of a magnificent apple tree, this book uses poetry to cycle through the changes of the four seasons. Beginning with springtime, rhyming couplets take young readers through seasonal activities such as kite flying in the spring, summertime picnicking, fall trick-or-treating, all the way to building snowmen in the winter, before cycling back to spring again. One verse in each season references a major holiday, including Easter and Christmas.
