Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Blizzard Wizard A wonderful new book from Lynn Plourde that includes a forgetful wizard and a few snow spells that go all wrong make for a wonderful winter tale. As winter goes through the months the children make annual visits to the Blizzard Wizard to see if he has found his spell for snow. 'Still no snow?' sighed the kids one mid-winter day. 'So sorry,' apologized the Blizzard Wizard. He knew a winter without snow was like riding a bike without wheels. And so goes the quest of the children with the Blizzard Wizard to find his spell for snow. With each new inquiry the Wizard attempts to create snow from his memory with some very different results. With fluffy sheep for snow men and bananas for a slippery slope the children make do with the unusual snow. The story ends with an unusual twist where the Wizard finally finds his spell pinned inside his wizard's robe. This will be a fun story to read aloud to a group or as a one on one story for any child from 1-10 and beyond. Lynn has included some interesting facts about blizzards and snow. From Great Lake snow bursts to the blizzard of 1888, which prompted New York City to build its subway system. This is a fun book for all ages. Illustrator John Aardema has created a comical pallet with each new spell that is cast. Children will enjoy the way the children manage to take advantage of each misquoted spell. They will have fun looking for the littlest one that spends most of his time on the big white dog. - Kate Quinn, The Working Waterfront, 12/14/2010

The Blizzard Wizard is a funny children's story about what happens when the Blizzard Wizard loses his snow spell! Because a winter without snow is like a rainbow without colors, Blizzard Wizard knows he must find a solution for the world's children and fast. How he finally manages to achieve his re-discovered snow spell, and what a funny scene ensues caps this unusual version of weatherworking for the snowbound. Fairytale pastel illustrations help bring the Blizzard Wizard and crew to life in this most appealing weather primer for children ages 4 and up. -Midwest Book Review, 8/17/2010

.Children are sure to enjoy this amusing picture book with its magical mishaps and its comical outcomes. In addition to the main story, the author also provides her readers with two pages at the back of the book that are packed with blizzard facts. -Marya Jansen-Gruber, Through The Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
