When the leaves turn red and gold and start to fall, and the wind blows a little colder, children pull on rubber boots to splash in puddles or walk through the woods gathering nuts. Autumn is the season of preparation for the winter as animals make sure they have enough to eat or head south to warmer places. Children look forward to dressing up for Halloween and making lanterns for St. Martin’s parades. Young readers can follow the family depicted in the book to see what they are doing, wearing, celebrating, and what is happening outdoors.

The Author

Andrea Erne was born in 1958 in Stuttgart, Germany. She studied German, politics and cultural studies and began her career as an editor for a daily newspaper. She then moved to a large children's book publisher, and later began working freelance as an editor and author for book publishers and newspapers.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
