The title s familiar proverb, muse for many a postwinter bulletin board, inspires this picture-book interpretation. March comes with a roar. / He rattles your windows / and scratches at your door reads the text as the ink-and-watercolor illustrations show a young boy, who looks out the window and finds an ominous feline face peering in through the snow. Each subsequent scene illustrates the literal meaning a child might imagine when hearing the meteorological metaphors: a lion tracks mud, sleet, and hail into the house and just will not leave. Then, one morning, some fresh air tickles the obstinate beast s nose, and a cute lamb comes flying out with his sneeze, spreading nature and newness. The poetic license in this final scene, as well as in some of the rhymes, feels stretched, but both the words and pictures offer a warm depiction of the change of seasons along with a shout-out to young springtime allergy sufferers. --Booklist-Andrew Medlar
