About the Author

Richard B. Smith (1901-1935) was a composer best known for writing the lyrics to Felix Bernard's "Winter Wonderland."

Felix Bernard (1897-1944) was a composer of popular music as well as a conductor and, from childhood, a professional pianist. He wrote one-act comedies for vaudeville and toured the U.S., later settling down with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. In addition to "Winter Wonderland", Bernard is known for the song "Dardanella."

Tim Hopgood lives with his wife, children, and cats in North Yorkshire, England. A veteran graphic designer, he is the creator of more than ten picture books, including his book about colors, Wow! Said the Owl.

Praise For…

"A pleasing blend of visual charm and winter cheer that will delight children and grown-ups alike." —School Library Journal on Walking in a Winter Wonderland

“Hopgood interprets this beloved ballad, written by Thiele and Weiss and made famous by Louis Armstrong. His colorful mixed-media collages present a hopeful world, filled with summery trees, sunny blue skies, and pastoral scenes from around the globe. . . . an upbeat story hour selection.” —Booklist on What a Wonderful World

“With a satisfying night-to-day-to-night cycle, the book not only reinforces the concepts of colors but also provides a sense of security of the way things are supposed to be in the world. The repeated refrain of 'Wow!' throughout the book will elicit a chorus among young listeners at storytime.” —Booklist on Wow! Said the Owl

“Straightforward and flowing, this title makes a satisfying introduction to the colors of the day.” —School Library Journal on Wow! Said the Owl

“This sweet, wonder-filled picture book will make a good addition to toddler storytime and a perfect bedtime read, too.” —The Horn Book on Wow! Said the Owl
