Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Mole comes out of the ground one afternoon to discover snow for the first time and is enchanted. He finds something sparkling and decides it looks like a diamond. While he is carrying it back home, it changes, then disappears. When he tells his friends about it, they show him a tree filled with "diamonds," explaining that they are icicles, not magic as he supposed. But when they watch the light of the sunset through the icicles on the branches, they all agree that it was "marvelous," "wonderful," "fantastic," "magic." This simple tale starring the charming hero of this pair's previous Bringing Down the Moon and No Place Like Home celebrates the beauty and wonder of nature in winter. Cabban's watercolors focus on the animals and their anthropomorphic interaction. The primary action is depicted early in sequential vertical boxes, when Mole first slides down the hill, and then when he juggles the melting icicle. The double-page spreads of the snowy forest set the stage for Mole's icy education. The front endpapers present a green landscape, which is soon covered with enough snow to make the back endpapers be filled with white and include a snow-mole. The glitter on the jacket attracts us to the scene.
