I love this one a bit less than other Elsa Beskow classics including Children of the Forest and The Sun Egg as it is a bit more clunky and challenging to read as a bedtime tale.

The characters, however, are very memorable and beautifully illustrated. It's a lovely seasonal edition to any Elsa Beskow collection for sure.
The songs were a little corny and not in with the time. But it was still a good story line and the art was detailed and very colorful. An older child might like this story to learn about autumn and what harvest time is.

Something's a little off with the translation and it's not guaranteed to hold a younger child's interest but the pictures are gorgeous.
Love Elsa Beskow books!
