Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Apples and Butterflies is a gentle, lyrical poem about a family's autumn vacation that shows Prince Edward Island in a light we don't often see—the "bright blue and orange light" of fall. Tamara Thiébaux-Heikalo's rich and wild illustrations build a narrative with the text, depicting the family beachcombing, flying kites and picking apples. Shauntay Grant's award-winning poetry makes readers long to go with her and conveys the wide-open space of the island.
