Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A very good story thumbs up. American Bookseller
Deborah Zink Roffino
When two children spend an arduous day carefully shaping snow horses, they never expect to return at night to find the steeds have sprung to life! Matthew and Molly waste no time and climb aboard their creatures for a midnight ride. The intense blue and violet backgrounds offer brilliant contrasts for the spectacular snow creatures.

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Molly and Matthew wake up to find their yard covered with snow. School, happily, is canceled, so the children can hardly wait to go outside and play in the snow. Instead of making snowmen, though, they place their snowballs side by side to make snow-horses. That night, the glitter of moonlight on snow is too alluring to resist, and Molly and Matthew creep outside to ride their snow-horses. That's when the magic really begins. McGeorge handles the adventure as gently as one should handle a good horse, and crosses the very fine line between imagination and fantasy that children cross at play many times a day.
