The Blizzard's Robe

The Blizzard's Robe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Far to the north by the great Arctic Sea, where the winter sun barely rises above the horizon, live the People Who Fear the Winter Night. On the long winter nights the People huddle around their hearths, fearing visits from terrible Blizzard, who can destroy anything with its icy winds and snow.

Among the People lives a young girl named Teune — the finest robemaker they have ever known. One night while Blizzard rages outside, the sparks from Teune's fire accidentally set fire to Blizzard's magnificent robe and consume it. But while the People Who Fear the Winter Night rejoice that Blizzard is no longer a threat, Teune sorrows to we Blizzard's mighty robe destroyed and sets out to make amends.

Robert Sabuda once again demonstrates his extraordinary artistic versatility in these magnificent batik illustrations, with details drawn from authentic folk motifs.

Synopsis:

A young girl living in a village in the cold, dark Arctic makes a robe for the feared Blizzard. As a reward, he creates the famous Northern Lights. Beautifully creative artforms by Robert Sabuda accompany this heartwarming story.

About the Author

With each new picture-book project, Robert Sabuda challenges himself with a new artistic technique. Whether he uses mosaic as in Saint Valentine or faux stained glass as in Arthur and the Sword, he has consistently proven himself to be one of the most innovative illustrators in the field today. His book Tutankhamen's Gift was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book, and he recently received the Society of Children's Book Authors and Illustrators' Golden Kite Award for his delicate cut-paper illustrations in The Paper Dragon. Mr. Sabuda is an associate professor at the Pratt Institute and lives in New York City.
