it was amazing

Squirrel is watching for white, for wet, for cold and for soft. Squirrel is watching for snow and he won't hibernate without it! His scurried attempts to stay awake disrupt the slumber of Hedgehog,who wouldn't mind catching a snowflake or two himself, so the two croon sea shanties to pass the time til snowfall. Their ruckus gets Bear involved (the rumpliest, grumpiest, most whiskery bear I've seen of late), who worries that the first flake might already have fallen! The three scour the earth for that which is white, wet, cold and soft and in so doing uncover some pretty silly stand-ins for snow. Think tin cans, tube socks and toothbrushes! Will this ragtag bunch ever get their long-awaited winter? A handful of wordless pages give readers room to enjoy a wintry wonderland of mossy banks and knotted boughs and a cast of irresistibly scruffy and scrappy characters. Meschenmoser's well-paced humor and AWESOME animal portraits put Waiting for Winter at the top Green Bean's picks for this season!
