Praise For Chaucer's First Winter

"Cole's acrylic, pencil and ink illustrations contract winter's cool pallette with the warm hues of CHaucer and his friends, whose youthful exuberance bounds across the pages...Young readers will enjoy witnessing Chaucer's delight in the wonders of winter as well as his welcome return home."--Booklist

"Krensky's text shines in its use of dialogue."--Kirkus Reviews

"The standoued element of this clever book is Chaucer's naiveté and wonder as he experiences winter's offerings, and Krensky's descriptive writing neatly conveys his joy in exploration; young readers will readily identify with Chaucer's preference for ice skating over napping. Cole's acrylic, colored pencil, and ink illustrations...efectively showcase the wonders of the season."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
