In Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing according to Peter why don't leaves turn bright colors in the fall in New York City?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The answer to this is that, according to Peter, leaves in New York City do not turn bright colors in the fall because of how there is so much air pollution in the city.
You can find this answer early on in Chapter 4. It is on page 31 in my copy of the book -- this is the third page of the chapter. Peter says this when he is talking about how he likes to jump in the leaves in the fall. He says that he never knew that leaves turned bright colors until one time when he and his family went driving in the country.
