Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It snowed.
And snowed.
And snowed.
After it snowed,
everyone
bundled up and
went outside to play.
You come, too!

Carin Berger's exquisite collages illuminate, from dawn to dusk, the perfect winter day.

Review:

"'The whole world was white,' writes Berger in this hushed vision of a snowy day. Berger's collages, however, are no simple 'white': her hilly snowscapes are crafted from lined paper, handwritten ledgers, and typewritten pages in creamy off-whites and pale yellows. Berger follows the activities of various children with birdlike faces, layered in winter plaids, before they 'go home to warm hugs and dry clothes and steaming hot chocolate.' The pared-down prose both suggests the quiet stillness of a winter afternoon and lends itself to thoughtful consideration of each spread. Lovely. Ages 4 — 8. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Carin Berger is an award-winning designer and illustrator. The Little Yellow Leaf was named one of the Ten Best Illustrated Books of 2008 by the New York Times, and in a starred review, School Library Journal called her OK Go "clever," "innovative," and "sleekly designed." She is the creator of Not So True Stories & Unreasonable Rhymes and All Mixed Up, and the illustrator of Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, by Jack Prelutsky, among other books. She won the Society of Illustrators Founder's Award in 2006, and Publishers Weekly called her "one to watch." Carin Berger's cut-paper collages are made using ephemera, such as catalogues, old books, receipts, letters, and ticket stubs. She lives with her family in New York City.
