The Blizzard's Robeby Robert Sabuda
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
Sabuda's stunning masterpiece tells the story of a young girl living in a village in the cold, dark Arctic north, who makes a robe for the feared Blizzard. As a reward, he creates the Northern Lights. Full color.
