Following the long journey of a cute, imaginary, morph-like creature and his playful friends as they travel across the countryside throughout an entire season, this delightful and touching story presents a number of questions for adults and children to consider, such as how we are affected by the passage of time. It is a story of depth and poignant details that subtly reveals the answers to its questions in a beautiful and understated way.

Praise For Watching

"For [ages] 3+, a soulful, minimal, and finely produced little picturebook is Suzy Chic and Monique Touvay's Watching."  —Sunday Times (Books of the Year)

"Simple watercolors, some as small as fingernails, accompany this import's legible, hand-lettered text, so it's best suited for individual reading or sharing one-on-one."  —Kirkus Reviews
