Hall and Forsythe team up to great effect in this sensitively paced, gorgeous book about truly appreciating the natural world.

A gold leaf appears in the forest. As soon as the animals notice it, each wants it more than anything else in the world. But in their struggle for it, the leaf is destroyed. Heartbroken, the animals wonder: Will we ever again see such a leaf?
