About the Book

Like the tiles in mahjong, friendship takes time and patience to create a beautiful combination. Every month, Mrs. Owl and her neighbors from the woodlands gather together to eat treats, laugh, and play mahjong.

In autumn, as the days begin to cool, they use their monthly get together to celebrate a birthday. With winter comes snow. All the Woodlands are decorated for Christmas, and these friends still gather for mahjong. Spring arrives, melting the snow, and gardening begins. More change comes with the summer, but these friends stick together.

Mrs. Owl and her neighbors from the woodlands spend the four seasons celebrating, supporting, and getting together in the spirit of connection. Every season brings a different “wind” of joy, happiness, solitude, sadness, and thanks—all the elements that make up this very special bond between six friends.
