Little Elliot and Mouse are back for another fun adventure in Little Elliot: Fall Friends. Little Elliot and Mouse usually love the hustle and bustle of city living, but sometimes it feels too much. They decide that they need a break and decide to take a break to recharge. Fall Friends perfectly portrays the need to escape big city living from time to time, a feeling that ALL New Yorkers can relate to.
The two friends board a bus and in no time they are transported to a beautiful and serene countryside. The contrast between the city scenes and these scenes in nature, which is captured in such a stunning way visually is astounding.
Little Elliot and Mouse spend some time enjoying the fresh air together but quietly. They eventually decide to play hide and seek. Little Elliot picks the perfect hiding spot. In fact, he worries it’s too good.
Will Little Elliot and Mouse find their way back to one another? You’ll never guess how!
Mike Curato’s illustrations and text perfectly convey the stark contrast between city life and the vast expansiveness of the countryside. The characters are small in comparison to their surroundings in both settings, but the feeling is completely different in each. Apart from the storyline, the illustrations are a celebration of fall, with the beautiful foliage and fall activities including apple picking.
