Apples and Butterflies is a gentle, lyrical poem about a family's autumn vacation that shows Prince Edward Island in a light we don't often see—the "bright blue and orange light" of fall. Tamara Thiébaux-Heikalo's rich and wild illustrations build a narrative with the text, depicting the family beachcombing, flying kites and picking apples. Shauntay Grant's award-winning poetry makes readers long to go with her and conveys the wide-open space of the island.
Booklist - March 15, 2013
"A young girl narrator describes a family getaway to Prince Edward Island in this charmingly illustrated picture book with poetic touches...The lyrical text, with only a few lines per page, is simply constructed...The intricate, vibrant artwork incorporates playful and evocative elements, and the warm portrayal of a family appreciating nature's wonders and sharing in familiar activities like walking the beach or picking apples may inspire readers to dream or reminisce about their own vacations."
