I didn't really like the story at all, I don't know what it was but the little fox going around trying to put the leaves back on the tree just wasn't cute for me. The final page, in which Fletcher finally sees his tree in a new light, was particularly beautiful, offering a satisfying reassurance that, while change has come, it hasn't destroyed the tree's beauty. I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful illustrators, and my books have been published in many languages.

All in all, “Fletcher and the Falling Leaves” is a cute little story about the beauty of changes in the weather that I think many children who also love trees will enjoy for many years to come! This is a sweet story and while our girls aren't as naive as Fletcher, this is their first Fall and it will be their first Winter season (in a location that gets cold and snowy, that is!

Each morning, Fletcher would come out of the den and explore the world, but then he realizes that the tree’s leaves were turning gold and beginning to fall off the tree. Definitely want to read more from this series at some point because its a comforting kind of story and Fletcher is the perfect kind of character to explore the concept of seasons: a curious fox! I am actually writing a review of this picture book because I saw that it was published in Great Britain as "Ferdie and the Falling Leaves," and as an American I am horribly offended that we couldn't be trusted with a fox named Ferdie. I could definitely relate to this fox; telling a tree it will get better seems like something I would have done as a kid.

As the Autumn season sets in, Fletcher is very worried – his beautiful tree has begun to loose all of its leaves. Since then I have written lots of stories about rabbits, bears, mules, dragons, hedgehogs, squirrels, mice, a kind-hearted but easily confused fox. Julia Rawlinson has certainly done an awesome job at writing this story about a young fox’s attempts to save the tree he loves! I read this aloud to 4-year-olds today, and I have never, ever heard such audible gasps of "ohhhh"s as I did when I revealed the final page.He tries reattaching them and defending the leaves from squirrels who want the leaves for their nests. There's a melancholy to the story as Fletcher is confused and sad as to why the leaves continue to fall, so he protects the leaves day after day, but as the season changes the reader understands his grief. I never thought that I would be so amazed in this book about what autumn is like to children who love trees, but innocently do not really understand about the life cycle of a tree. Fletcher tells his tree friend that he’ll do everything he can to help and is soon scurrying around after falling leaves. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
