Florian is a personal favorite with his lively poetry and
images that stimulate young minds, planting the seeds of
grand adventures through reading. Learning is a positive
experience in every book this author/illustrator
contributes, awakening youthful curiosity, a consistent
energy that is both engaging and fanciful. Such tales are
meant to be shared or read aloud, a source of merriment for
"The temperature falls
Degree by degree.
It falls through the air
And lands upon me."
Complementing Winter Eyes and Summersaults, Autumnblings is
another of Florian's delightful poetic romps through the
season, the series of silly poems accompanied by the usual
quirky and humorous illustrations the author does so well.
"Maple seeds in fall turn brown,
then they fall off and all fall down-
like fallicopters to the ground."
