Leaves on trees
are green and bright
What a Sight!
Eleven gatefolds open to re-create the excitement and surprise of fall’s arrival, revealing what happens when the leaves turn. Fall is a season of transition: apples are picked, and animals prepare for winter. Summer days are coming to an end, and there's a hint of winter in the air. Hocus Pocus, It’s Fall! celebrates the magic of that in-between time.
"As in the previous book, O'Brien's rhymes and rhythms stick every landing... Gal's smudgy illustrations, a technology-spanning combination of charcoal on paper and digital collage, glory in the golds, crimsons, and russets of fall, adding contrasting blues and greens for extra pop. A buoyant welcome to the season."Kirkus
"The simple, engaging text (“Pick a pumpkin,/orange and fat./Razzle dazzle!/Look at that!”) is paired with Gal’s layered charcoal on collage illustrations, which fill the pages with rich and appealing details."School Library Journal
