Robert's Snowflakes is the perfect gift for a collector, an art lover, and anyone who wants to support the fight against cancer.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Robert's Snowflakes: Artists' Snowflakes for Cancer's Cure, compiled by Grace Lin and Robert Mercer, is a gift that keeps on giving. After raising more than $100,000 for cancer's cure with the auction of 200 snowflakes painted by children's book illustrators, Lin and Mercer collect them in the pages of this book, whose proceeds also go solely for a cure for cancer. Haiku peppers the pages, which brim with glorious artwork by the likes of Mordicai Gerstein, Margaret Chodos-Irvine, Eric Rohmann and Emily Arnold McCully. Readers can punch out Lin's final snowflake and hang it on the tree. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Gr 2 Up-When doctors told Lin and her husband that a cure for cancer was his greatest hope of survival, they decided to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Lin called upon fellow children's book authors and illustrators, and a project was born-each one would decorate a wooden snowflake that was then auctioned, raising over $100,000. Someone suggested that the snowflakes be put into a book, and Robert's Snowflakes was created (proceeds from this book go to the institute). Featuring reproductions of work by Eric Carle, David Shannon, Emily Arnold McCully, Eric Rohmann, Denise Fleming, Ian Falconer, and Lin herself, the book is a handsome showcase of art. The artist and the medium are listed at the bottom of the pages. Wintry haiku nicely complement the snowflakes. The endpapers feature tiny replicas of even more snowflakes, which will have children running to the Web site to see the complete archive. Art teachers will find the book particularly useful, as the project could be replicated in their classes.-Angela J.
