It's Summer

It’s the good old Summertime!

It’s Summer

Jimmy Pickering’s charming illustrations again capture the adventures of Sally and Sam as they find more good times: swimming, picnicking and selling lemonade – all the special treats of summer! Another wonderful, whimsical journey, this time through the magical memories of our hottest season.


Retro graphics simulate a collage treatment, with textured lavender skies and two-toned tulips and daffodils sprouting up from the spot illustrations and full-bleed compositions. Sunflower and vegetable gardens overtake the artwork in Summer.”

Each glossy spread has colorful, computer-generated cartoon illustrations that match the exuberance of the text. The large-print fonts change color and size throughout both books.”
