Product Details


★ “James’ gentle, straightforward prose is striking in its simplicity, capturing the strangeness and joy of new friendship as well as the ache of loneliness. . . . Mann’s sweeping, digitally collaged landscapes glow in a warm welcome to young viewers, with a combination of painterly and penciled textures bringing depth. . . . Honors the depth and longevity of friendship, even with the inevitability of loss.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, Starred Review

“With touching emotional authenticity, Maple & Rosemary explores the bonds of friendship and the promises it entails. . . . This tender story is essential reading for tree-whisperers everywhere.”—BookPage

“Emotionally honest and visually aware of life’s seasons, this book acknowledges that cherished bonds don’t always follow a simple script.”—Publishers Weekly

“Stunning illustrations depict the passing of seasons and the eventual reunion of the duo. James’s text centers Maple, rather than Rosemary, as the main character, providing the unique protagonist with emotions and feelings, while Mann’s mixed-media spreads capture the beauty and wonder of the seasons. . . . A tale of friendship and the environment that will find a home in many collections.”—School Library Journal

“A sweet story of friendship. . . .”—Kirkus Reviews
