"Curato’s lush illustrations revel in the calm of rural expanses (“The country is even bigger than the city!” Elliot exclaims), creating a sense of palpable relief as the friends relax." —Publishers Weekly,starred review, onLittle Elliot, Fall Friends

"the resulting artwork offers a wondrous presentation of the russets, greens, and golds of trees on rolling hills, very like Grant Wood’s idyllic farm landscape paintings. This charming celebration of friendship (and fall) deepens with each rereading." —Booklist onLittle Elliot, Fall Friends

"Making excellent use of light and shadow, the painterly illustrations are sumptuous, dominated by oranges, reds, and golds. Curato brings to life the fall countryside just as effectively as he does the urban setting." —School Library Journal onLittle Elliot, Fall Friends
