Praise

“Swift, impressionistic sketches filled with soft pastel-hued washes create pastoral snowy scenes that contrast with the warmer, more saturated domestic scenes and with the thick-lined, cherry-red snowplow. Long, layered smears of white create a satisfying illusion of a blizzard, and Davenier utilizes various interesting perspectives, such as the view into the snowy woods from behind the windshield. . . . A winning, winter race.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Rhyming, minimal text coupled with fetching illustrations by Davenier expertly convey the exhilarating drama of entering into a snowstorm as well as the comfy feelings of being in a warm house while the weather is frightful.”—School Library Journal
 
“In this streamlined story in rhyme, the snow is piling up and our protagonist needs to get into town. Fortunately, her father drives the snowplow, so through the snow the pair go, with the occasional slip and slide, as they try to make it to town in time. . . . While there are touches of Davenier’s familiar peacock tones and fluid watercolor washes, she’s also got some grainier pencil-type textures that add coziness, and the outside scenes are creamily frosted, muting the hue of the tomato-red truck.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
