This warm and gentle story celebrates both fall and friendship and continues the adventures of Elliot and Mouse. Little Elliot, Fall Friends shows kids a lot about the season, including its yellow, red, and orange colors and the produce harvested at this time: apples, corn, pumpkins. At the center, as always, is our two heroes' loving, caring relationship. And this time they meet new animal friends, too, and spend a cozy night sleeping on the hay in their barn.

Author-illustrator Mike Curato's art is spectacular, contrasting the bustling, noisy, dirty city with the vast, peaceful country landscape, and capturing the intimate, changing emotions of Elliot and Mouse.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
