About the Book & Series


One autumn Monday, Michelle Wang couldn’t find a book to read aloud to her Grade One class, so she wrote one!

It Must Be Autumn … and this book’s fun-loving family is out to discover all the wonderful signs of the beautiful Fall season. Join in their antics as they shake and rhyme their way to a surprise ending that is sure to delight readers of all ages. There’s even a couple of wisecracking squirrels to keep the laughs coming as the pair frolic through the pages telling jokes that will leaf you fall-ing over into a great big pile of chuckles.

It Must Be Autumn is the first book in her Seasons series. Look for: It Must Be Winter coming out Fall 2021, and It Must Be Spring to be released in the winter.

About the Author

When not cheering on her favorite hometown sports teams or playing random songs every time she walks by a piano, Michelle can be found reading a book to avoid cleaning her very messy house. Michelle and her family are excellent leaf pile jumpers.
