Winter. Spring. Summer. Autumn. <i>My Four Seasons</i> follows a charming protagonist through the change of seasons and a vibrant collection of Dawid Ryski’s iconic illustrations.
Bold colors bring the nuances of each of the four seasons to life: the autumnal foliage in its gold and red glory; the crisp white of winter months; the bright yellow of a summer sun; and the green and floral palette of fresh spring landscapes.
As the pages of My Four Seasons turn, so do the seasons. A traipse through a city buried in snow leads to a scene of springtime renewal. Before summer arrives, My Four Seasons portrays the planting to be done before a plentiful harvest. BBQs and lakeside outings paint a backdrop of summer leisure soon to be usurped by autumn winds and Halloween fiends. As all is a cycle, winter returns to begin Mother Nature’s seasonal tale once more while its white quilt covers the ground, welcoming slumber to both reader and foliage.
