Children's Literature
The pompous Otter frightens Snowshoe the Arctic Hare with a tale of white hares that melt with the spring thaw. Hare is horrified when his fur begins to turn white. How can he avoid melting in the spring sun? The reader is drawn through this delightful tale as Squirrel, Porcupine, and Swan try to think up ways to preserve Hare. Hide him from the sun? Make a likeness so they can rebuild him with the next year's snow? Thankfully, Lemming saves the day as he explains that Hare has a winter coat just like Lemming's, and his lovely spotted brown coat will return in the spring. Hare's panic seems entirely hare-like, and Porcupine's slow-witted advice is a perfect foil for Squirrel's dizzy capering. Readers are in on the joke from the beginning, and the expressions on the animals faces just make the fun that much more enjoyable. This "Go Bananas" book ends with facts about winter and animal adaptations to weather in different parts of the globe, as well as some interesting activities. 2005, Crabtree, and Ages 7 to 8.
