“[A] little marvel of distilled storytelling…To know Lilly is to want to know what she has to say.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Lilly is a spunky little girl who delights in the unexpected pleasures of each season, peering inside shells in the summer and tasting different kinds of apples in the fall. In this charming and subtle book by one of France’s premier children’s book authors, Lilly learns more about the outdoors, and introduces the youngest readers to the colors, words, and shapes that arise in nature. Silly Lilly’s intimate monologues deftly capture a child’s sense of wonder, in five whimsical episodes that cycle through the calendar from Spring back to Spring again.
