Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you're a champion ice-skater, you have to wait for the conditions to be just right.

You have to wait through spring.
You have to wait through summer.
You have to wait through autumn until . . .

Finally, as the snow begins to fall, you can show the world just how good you really are!

From the author/illustrator of The Secret Circus and Bandits comes one very self-assured young rabbit's first-hand account of the trials and tribulations of being a skating star, with illustrations that will melt your heart on even the coldest winter day.

Review:

"A confident young rabbit announces herself to be a 'champion ice-skater,' even if Wright's (Bandits) canvas-textured paintings sometimes tell a different story. Low on conflict but filled with atmosphere, Wright's story begins as the rabbit waits 'for the conditions to be just right.' This takes her through three seasons: her parents tend to the garden in the spring, the family goes swimming in the summer, and autumn means harvest and a pumpkin-headed scarecrow in a tutu. Finally, it's time to skate, and Wright has gentle fun at her heroine's expense. 'I have a lot of fans,' the girl says as birds crowd trees that flank the frozen pond; some of those same birds help the rabbit 'spin faster than anyone,' which results in her getting wrapped up like a mummy in her pink scarf. With books and artwork lining the walls and a blazing fireplace for toasting marshmallows, the rabbit family's 
supremely cozy home will be the subject of many readers' envy, and Wright conveys a strong sense of familial togetherness in every scene. Ages 2 — 6. Agent: Rosemary Stimola, Stimola Literary Studio. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
