KIRKUS REVIEW

Three small children explore the woods near their new home, experiencing ""a new kind of coolness"" as the sun is ""above the leaves,"" freezing a bird who is trapped in a shack (""the bird is going home,"" says little Addle), following the brook until it ends in a pond (""The brook is home,"" says Addle). Just as the children see the sun and clouds in the brook, Knotts' hushed fine line drawings reflect the mood of their quiet idyll.
