Inspired by a windy autumn afternoon and two real little girls, The Perfect Leaf takes the simple joy of leaf-kicking and turns it into an extraordinary flight of the imagination.

Written and illustrated by the creator of the CBCA Notable Book The Poppy, and illustrator of the Ford Street titles Spark and Glitch, The Perfect Leaf is a glorious celebration of the power of invention, and of the joys of being a child.

'The Perfect Leaf by Andrew Plant will help you to see the wonder that is nature...a lovely book to share as the seasons change and we start to crunch through the leaves on the ground. It is one that will help you to discuss why we shouldn't strive for perfection but instead strive for what makes us truly happy.' — Educate Empower

'The Perfect Leaf is a glorious explosion of colour and joy. Smothered in hues of honey-on-warm-toast, this book oozes the golden splendour of autumn on each page, promoting friendship, imagination and creativity in a way adults often forget about but children naturally embrace.' — Boomerang Books
