This self contained poem written by a master poet is deftly illustrated in this beautiful volume. Robert Frost is a poet who could and did speak to everyone. Most memorably, in his evocation of the peaceful charm of snow falling in the forest. The illustrator brings the wintry woods to life with richly detailed, subtly colored artwork. Filled with creatures of all sorts to find hidden among the trees. Elegant and able to withstand time this poem will live long in the hearts of its readers. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood

Though not as creative or spontaneous as his first collection, POLKABATS AND OCTOPUS SLACKS, Calef Brown's newest will appeal to those who loved his first book. Same zany illustrations, same silly fun - Brown goes a long way in filling a gap left by the death of Shel Silverstein.
