Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
Fawn Braun is not looking forward to a Christmas without snow. She imagines having to make a snowman from straw and a snow angel in the dirt. She convinces the town people to try to make snow of their own. They attempt the feat by using crushed chalk, powdered sugar, popcorn, cotton balls, and soap bubbles. Each attempt is met with failure. In the end Christmas comes anyway and Fawn and the townspeople are happy. The digital illustrations make the characters look a bit creepy. One of the children appears to be a giant in under-sized clothes and the expression on the cat is off-putting. While the children are dressed in contemporary clothes, the townspeople use cars and planes from the forties and fifties. The text uses a small font with minimal spacing between the lines which makes it difficult for young readers and difficult for adults trying to share the book with a large group. There are many better holiday books available. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–It’s almost Christmas and there’s no snow in sight, so young Fawn Braun exhorts the citizens of Pfeffernut County to make their own. Despite the failure of sugar, popcorn, cotton balls, and mini marshmallows to replicate the real thing, Christmas comes anyway and is the merriest one ever. The story is straightforward, with a teacherly list of five “follow-up” questions and some “fun snow facts.” The digital illustrations feature slightly surreal-looking townspeople sporting red Christmas sweaters. The endpapers consist of scrapbooklike newspaper clippings, photos, and other realia about the town. Most libraries can skip this one.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
