Applesauce Weather

By Helen Frost
Illustrated by Amy June Bates

“Fresh, sweet, and crisp, this novel has a magic all its own.” — Booklist (starred review)

When the first apple falls from the tree, Faith and Peter know that it’s applesauce weather — and that Uncle Arthur should be here to tell his stories with a twinkle in his eye. But this is the first year without Aunt Lucy, and when Uncle Arthur arrives, there’s no twinkle to be found and no stories waiting to be told. Might a little love and patience make a difference? With warm, expressive illustrations by Amy June Bates, this heartfelt tale by award-winning poet Helen Frost highlights the strength of family and the power of a good story.

  • Now in paperback, the first novel-in-poems by award-winning author Helen Frost for an early middle-grade audience
  • This heartfelt multi-generational tale highlights the strength of family, tradition, and story, and is perfect for those looking for a book for family read-aloud sharing
  • A great Common Core title; Helen Frost has a strong following in school and library markets, as well as in the trade
