Product Details


“Confident artistry and an intuitive knowledge of what the world looks like to a very small person make a winning combination in Wheeler’s debut . . . Careful observation of seeds (including a labeled seed chart), leaves, and plants gives the artwork substance, and Japanese woodblock–style skies that fade to sunset hues provide a wistful emotional overlay. Wheeler has clearly had a good time inventing fairy-house fixtures for Miss Maple: flower lantern boats and hollow-log houses make one yearn to escape our big, unwieldy world and inhabit hers.”—Publishers Weekly

“Completely enchanting . . . Miss Maple is the perfect embodiment of a caregiver . . . Each page is filled with broad vistas, warm breezes, woodland creatures, and other whimsical imagery that cannot help but welcome readers into Miss Maple’s world. With its positive message about the value of nurturing even the tiniest bit of the natural world, this book is simply wonderful.”—School Library Journal

“The clean, fluid lines and lovely shading of the ink-and-watercolor artwork gives the book a beguiling look that will go a long way toward charming parents as well as children . . . For classroom units, this picture book could add a fanciful counterpoint to more down-to-earth books on seeds.”—Booklist
