Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Old Man Winter, about to depart on his yearly journey south, overhears many more people grumbling about his weather than appreciating its beauty. Miffed, he decides to quit his weather making job and go back to bed. That decision spells big trouble for the little town in which he was wintering. This is a cozy winter read. It's complete with sly humor, enough action in the illustrations to get young imaginations really cooking, and a nice little lesson on seasons and cycles to boot!
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Old Winter, a rotund elderly gentleman in a green overcoat, causes a prolonged season when he falls asleep in the meat locker at the P & J Supermarket after overhearing the townspeople complain. "He had brought beautiful, cold, sparkling winter to this puny little flat-topped town, and did they care?...No, they wanted to...run him out of town." Alley's cartoon drawings of children, adults, and animals bustling about in the store and snowy streets create a humorous profusion of activity in the art that's reminiscent of Steven Kellogg's work. The small, square format of the book is pleasing with occasional square vignettes set into broader scenes, breaking up some of the clutter. The amusing personification of the seasons as contemporary, down-to-earth folks extends to a woman in sunglasses, sandals, and a bright green T-shirt who arrives in a shiny yellow car with her daughters, Daff and Violet. Old Winter heads for the pampas in Argentina as Spring scatters flower seeds through the north. The tongue-in-cheek explanation will leave some readers wondering when Summer and Autumn might show up at the P & J.-Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
