About the Author

Eden Ross Lipson was children's book editor of The New York Times Book Review until 2005, and is the author of the authoritative New York Times Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children.

Mordicai Gerstein is the author and illustrator of The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, winner of the Caldecott Medal, and has had four books named New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year. Gerstein was born in Los Angeles in 1935. He remembers being inspired as a child by images of fine art, which his mother cut out of Life magazine, and by children's books from the library: "I looked at Rembrandt and Superman, Matisse and Bugs Bunny, and began to make my own pictures."

He attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, and then got a job in an animated cartoon studio that sent him to New York, where he designed characters and thought up ideas for TV commercials. When a writer named Elizabeth Levy asked him to illustrate a humorous mystery story about two girls and a dog, his book career began, and soon he moved on to writing as well as illustrating. "I'm still surprised to be an author," he says. "I wonder what I'll write next?" Gerstein lives in Westhampton, Massachusetts.

An absolutely delightful book! The illustrations are vibrant. The text flows easily. The story is simple but beautiful. There's a subtle message about eating with the seasons, about eating locally, that comes through, too.

This book would be great to read in the fall. The story is about the traditions that the family has making applesauce during harvest season. Family traditions that have created lasting memories on the young boy who carried on the traditions as an adult. This is a great book that combines information with a great story.

Genre: Fiction/Informational This is a good example of informational/fiction because it is a fun little story of a sweet family, who is not real, but shows a functional family working together as a team to create memories and amazing applesauce. The applesauce part is the informational part of book because by the end of the book you could make your own applesauce with out even a recipe. For easy access the author printed the recipe to make your own homemade applesauce on the back so you will not need to flip through the book to figure out how to make it like they do. Art Media: Crayons pen, and possibly water colors were used. The illustrator is my author for my author study but he did not right the book just illustrated. Mordicai Gerstein's style was very appropriate for this book because he uses bright fall colors and protrays the unity of the family.

Have you ever sat through a really boring story told by a really boring person, and you thought, "Maybe, at least, at the end of this, there will be something interesting," then there isn't a cool twist or worthwhile insight? That's this book all over, friends. I sniffed out that this was another celeb writer offering, though Booklist, SLJ, Horn, and Kirkus all crowed about the excellence of this snore fest, which is the baby of a now-deceased New York Times children's book editor. Yes, I like the matte quality of the illustrations, but matte does not a tale make.
