Description

One cold morning a lonely boy wishes for something to do. His animal friends are hibernating, and he has nobody to play with-even all the birds have flown south. When he meets Jack Frost, the last thing he expects is to make a new friend... or to discover how enchanting winter can be!

“The simple lines and crisp images, especially of spiky Jack Frost, pop and are a delight for the eyes . . . . This is a beautiful piece of bookmaking.” School Library Journal

A sparkling winter treat.” —Publishers Weekly

“The artful design is what will draw repeat viewers, young and old, who’ll be taken with the pictures’ evocative feel.”Booklist

As in Ghosts in the House!, the limited-palette illustrations are composed of the simplest shapes and lines, here enhanced with swirls of motion (check out Jack’s shoes), mottled-background snowfall, and a few perfectly formed snowflakes.” —Horn Book
