O’Farrell’s touching, slightly eerie story is rendered beautifully by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini. . . . Since its artwork is paired so well with the poetry of the words, ‘Where Snow Angels Go’ has the feel of a timeless bedtime story.
—The New York Times Book Review
Using line, color washes, and arresting perspectives, the illustrations in this lengthy picture book deftly convey the realism of Sylvie’s world, the wonder of her snow angel, and the sweetness of their bond in scenes of drama as well as stillness. . . . An appealing contemporary fairy tale told with humor and warmth.
Graceful ink and watercolor spreads by Terrazzini (The Seeing Stick) give pre-Raphaelite romance to the tall angel and to Sylvie’s soulful eyes and honey-colored hair. O’Farrell’s lengthy, storybook-style narration and winning dialogue (“I really had no idea that you would be so talkative,” the angel sighs) similarly give life to this witty exploration of godlike power and what it’s good for.
