Review

Blizzard Wizard A wonderful new book from Lynn Plourde that includes a forgetful wizard and a few snow spells that go all wrong make for a wonderful winter tale. As winter goes through the months the children make annual visits to the Blizzard Wizard to see if he has found his spell for snow. 'Still no snow?' sighed the kids one mid-winter day. 'So sorry,' apologized the Blizzard Wizard. He knew a winter without snow was like riding a bike without wheels. And so goes the quest of the children with the Blizzard Wizard to find his spell for snow. With each new inquiry the Wizard attempts to create snow from his memory with some very different results. With fluffy sheep for snow men and bananas for a slippery slope the children make do with the unusual snow. The story ends with an unusual twist where the Wizard finally finds his spell pinned inside his wizard's robe. This will be a fun story to read aloud to a group or as a one on one story for any child from 1-10 and beyond. Lynn has included some interesting facts about blizzards and snow. From Great Lake snow bursts to the blizzard of 1888, which prompted New York City to build its subway system. This is a fun book for all ages. Illustrator John Aardema has created a comical pallet with each new spell that is cast. Children will enjoy the way the children manage to take advantage of each misquoted spell. They will have fun looking for the littlest one that spends most of his time on the big white dog. - Kate Quinn, The Working Waterfront, 12/14/2010

The Blizzard Wizard is a funny children's story about what happens when the Blizzard Wizard loses his snow spell! Because a winter without snow is like a rainbow without colors, Blizzard Wizard knows he must find a solution for the world's children and fast. How he finally manages to achieve his re-discovered snow spell, and what a funny scene ensues caps this unusual version of weatherworking for the snowbound. Fairytale pastel illustrations help bring the Blizzard Wizard and crew to life in this most appealing weather primer for children ages 4 and up. -Midwest Book Review, 8/17/2010

.Children are sure to enjoy this amusing picture book with its magical mishaps and its comical outcomes. In addition to the main story, the author also provides her readers with two pages at the back of the book that are packed with blizzard facts. -Marya Jansen-Gruber, Through The Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews

The Blizzard Wizard takes a silly look at the weather, and all the various aspects of snow. It also has some great facts about blizzards in the back of the book so it is entertaining and educational. But,the best part of the book is the whimsical illustrations. Each page is full of items to look at. Each character has an individual look that draws you in (pardon the pun) to look some more. My daughter and I really enjoyed reading and looking at The Blizzard Wizard.

More About the Author

Lynn Plourde is the author of numerous kids' books. Most are funny, but some will make you cry. She's a word-player: highfalutin fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling. She even makes up words: shmuffle, rizzle, and puckery-smuckery. She's written about those who inspire: a biography of Margaret Chase Smith and a graphic novel about Donn Fendler and his miraculous survival saga. She's a teaching author who has done hundreds of visits to schools where she shares her books interactively, acts some out as plays, and teaches writing mini-lessons (i.e. copycat stories, problem stories, character stories, fables, graphic novel scenes). Having worked more than two decades as a speech-language therapist, Lynn utilizes the knowledge of sounds and instructional skills she gained from that earlier profession in her career as a kids' book author. Lynn is a native Mainer who frequently uses her home state as inspiration when writing about moose, muddy ruds, the four seasons, Mount Katahdin, and being "at one" with nature. She lives in Winthrop, Maine, with her husband. You can learn more about her at her website: www.lynnplourde.com
