As the Autumn season sets in, Fletcher is very worried – his beautiful tree has begun to loose all of its leaves. Whatever Fletcher attempts to do to save them, it’s simply no use. When the final leaf falls, Fletcher feels hopeless… until he returns the next day to a glorious sight.
A tender, uplifting tale about acceptance and hope for the future.

'Captivating' Publishers Weekly
'This charming autumnal picture book for young children with a gentle caring storyline by Julia Rawlinson is brought to life with stunning artwork by Tiphanie Beeke.' Books Up North
'My favorite part of Fletcher and the Falling Leaves is the illustrations. The style reminds me of a watercolor painting. I particularly like the rendering of Fletcher the fox, who is sweet and rather whimsical. My daughter, who loves foxes, also loves pointing out Fletcher on each page of the story.' The Parenting Patch
'A poetic tribute to winter and fall, Fletcher’s story is sure to resonate with young readers.' Kirkus Reviews
'Rawlinson truly does have a way with words, and has painted a beautiful picture of a beautiful season that is backed up by the soft brush strokes and rich colors of Beeke’s artwork.' Literary Fusions
