Book Nerd Mommy was inspired to create her own Raspberry Rhubarb Tart after reading Under the Umbrella

It is very well written (with beautiful rhyming and rhythm to swoon over) and makes for a positively lovely read aloud.
Along with the story I am obsessed with the illustrations. Marion is very selective about the colors used and in the beginning all is dark with sharp angles and a moody atmosphere. Then when you come to the bakery the light and brightness colored in simply spills out into the morose scene. Finally, when the two friends share the tart, bright, vivid happy colors burst onto the page in a celebration of joy and optimism. The use of color in this book adds a new dimension to the story and displays a visual treat of the effect and power of joy. I am in love!”
