Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The creators of numerous acclaimed picture books offer another winning title. A beautifully crafted story filled with wonder." -- Starred, Booklist "With their signature simplicity and gentle insight, this accomplished picture-book team lyrically presents the life cycle of a house in nature. Hallensleben's saturated Van Gogh-like colors visualize this quiet reverie." -- Kirkus Reviews "Lyrical.the spare, evocative text serves as an effective counterpoint to the rich, painterly perspectives of the blue house." -- School Library Journal "The book concerns an empty house and the inevitable passing of time, but Banks's soft phrasing and Hallensleben's velvety, blurred paintings make the place seem pillowy and inviting in deepest winter." -- Publishers Weekly "Peacefully composed." -- Chicago Tribune.

Inhaltsangabe: An award-winning team again join their talents When summer ends, a family pack their suitcases and bid the big blue house farewell. All seems quiet. But soon the leaves change color; then comes the snow. A cat creeps into the house and curls up in the woodbox. A mouse tucks himself into a cupboard. When spring comes, the garden awakens, and by summer the house is bustling with human life once more.
This unusual story about a summer house that welcomes all sorts of guests in the off-season celebrates the rhythm and cycle of the seasons, and reminds us all that we share our world ? even our homes ? with other living creatures.
