Editorial Reviews

Review

“The simple linocut illustrations are stunning; with white figures on a blue background, they create an idealized wintry world.”—Bloomberg.com

“The simple lines and crisp images, especially of spiky Jack Frost, pop and are a delight for the eyes . . . . This is a beautiful piece of bookmaking.” —School Library Journal

“A sparkling winter treat.” —Publishers Weekly

“The artful design is what will draw repeat viewers, young and old, who’ll be taken with the pictures’ evocative feel.” —Booklist

“As in Ghosts in the House!, the limited-palette illustrations are composed of the simplest shapes and lines, here enhanced with swirls of motion (check out Jack’s shoes), mottled-background snowfall, and a few perfectly formed snowflakes.” —Horn Book

Format: Hardcover
This is a bittersweet touching book about a boy's encounter with Jack Frost. For me it was about living in the moment and the fleeting joys of winter and ultimately, life. The illustrations are lovely and it makes for a quick read, nice for a goodnight story. It's a sweet, sensitive tale, and I think it would make a great Holiday gift.

Format: Hardcover
It's the illustrations that shine here- the simple artwork is very engaging and perfectly complements the magical little story of Jack Frost. It's the perfect book for the end of winter when everyone needs a reminder that Spring is just around the corner. I loved this authors book Ghosts in the House and this one is just as wonderful. It's great for group sharing; kids in my groups were full of questions about Jack Frost. A solid choice for post-holiday winter story times for preschoolers.

I absolutely love this book. Simple, short, and sweet. I gave this to a 3 year old boy whom I babysit, and he LOVES reading it with me. The pictures are beautiful, and it's fun to read together. I give this book along with this author's other book, "Ghosts in the House". I highly recommend this book.

I read a positive review of this book somewhere and bought it to read to my kindergarten class. The story is very sweet - about a visit from Jack Frost. And the pictures are visually appealing: stark blue and white tipped with silver - but beautiful and lacy, too. After reading it to my class, my students asked our school librarian to get several copies for our school.
