it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

One of the most hilarious, most expressive, most well done pictures books I've read. Squirrel is determined to stay up this winter to watch the first snowfall. His vigorous exercises (because waiting for snow is not very thrilling) wake Hedgehog, who decides to watch with him. Their heartily sung sea shanties wake Bear, who also joins them in the watch. But what if they have already missed the first snowflake? They decide to search for each, and each animal comes up with something wet, white, and cold, but none of them are snowflakes. Finally the snow does fall, and the animals are mesmerized. A nice little joke ends the book. Some of the best use of textless pages I have ever encountered. A perfect book.
