Summary

Fletcher loves everything about spring: listening to the birds sing, smelling just-opened flowers, and playing chase with butterflies. But then Fletcher sees something he never expected to see in spring: snow. Oh, no!

But it turns out that spring has another surprise in store for Fletcher--a warm and wondrous one.

Jump into spring with Fletcher nd friends!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With delicate Impressionistic watercolors and clear, simple words, the team that did Fletcher and the Falling Leaves (2006) tells another changing-seasons story about a surprising transformation in the woods that confuses the little fox Fletcher. This time he sees snowflakes, and, full of self-importance, he rushes to warn his animal friends that winter is not over and they must not leave their shelters or come out of hibernation. But, in fact, the flakes are blossoms. Preschoolers will love being in on the joke, even as they marvel at the bright petals that herald the astonishing beauty of spring.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Introduced in Fletcher and the Falling Leaves, the cute little fox Fletcher now discovers spring. Seeing blossoms swirling through the air-Beeke renders them as a flurry of white smudges-Fletcher becomes convinced that the snow has returned. Feeling "bouncy [and] full-of-importance," he sounds the alarm to his forest comrades, who are not a little peeved when they realize Fletcher's mistake. All is quickly forgiven as they revel in the glories of the season: "The animals scooped up pawfuls and clawfuls of blossoms from the ground, and covered him in a tickly shower of fluttering white petals!" The distinctly British lilt of Rawlinson's prose should prove captivating for preschoolers. But it's Beeke who gives this book its reason for being. Working in her signature naOf style, she gives each character a vivid personality (the steadfast porcupine and slacker rabbits are particularly memorable) and conjures up an irresistible forest: bathed in warm greens and yellows, punctuated with impish bursts of color, and just imposing enough to be a suitable setting for adventure.
