Disney-Hyperion (October 30, 2014)
Author John Rocco presents a story of New England's blizzard of 1978, based on his own childhood experience.
Why You'll Love It:
- Rocco's artwork is center stage here -- a double gatefold shows the extent of the detours John takes to gather grocery orders from his housebound neighbors and make his way to the store.
- The white negative space around some of his images effectively portrays the vastness of the snowstorm in a minimalist way.
- The kid is the hero! What a great message for our readers.
Great for Grades K-2...and here's the book trailer.
