Product Details


Snow has a way of reshaping our reality, and it’s in that sensation of wonder that Usher’s truth lies. He has created the feeling that when it snows, something unexpected and magical might lurk outdoors; perhaps even a hippo or two.
—The New York Times

With toys coming to life, all the fun in the snow, and the lovely child-grandparent relationship, this is a welcome addition to the winter bookshelf.
—Kirkus Reviews

Usher’s gorgeous illustrations in ink and watercolor complement the story to a tee. An outrageous outdoor romp to add to storytimes about snow and winter fun.
—School Library Journal

The ink-and-watercolor illustrations are expressive and convey the allure of a white-swathed, winter wonderland…This slight yet pleasing story will have readers wishing for a snowfall of their own.

While the story is featherlight, Usher’s ink-and-watercolor cartoons have a loose energy that plants them firmly in the Quentin Blake tradition.
—Publishers Weekly

In this exuberant picture book in watercolor and ink, British illustrator Sam Usher captures the delicious sense of anticipation of a snow day, then adds elephants and monkeys and "all the games you can play in the snow" to launch it into the stratosphere.
