PreSchool-Grade 2—When Ollie sees the first flakes fall, he and his siblings scamper off to roll and dig in the snow-covered field. All of a sudden a large dog approaches and barks at them. Frightened, the three puppies run off, and Ollie runs so far that he gets lost. An owl perched in a tree advises him to follow his tracks home, but cautions that he needs to hurry before the falling snow covers them. When he reaches the edge of the woods, the pup slides down an icy slope, encounters fox cubs, and soon realizes that he is unsure of how to proceed. Cold, hungry, and tired, he lies down under a bush. About to close his eyes, Ollie hears his mom call his name. Home safe and sound, he falls fast asleep. Soft-focus illustrations lend a quiet, dreamy, wintry quality to the attractive spreads. The puppies are appealing with wide-spaced eyes and large black noses. Children will empathize with the dog's ordeal and be reassured by Ollie's family's determination to find him.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

There are many, many stories about lost little ones (be they children or animal stand-ins) finding their way home. This one treads no new ground, but the pictures make it irresistible. Here, a golden pup named Ollie ventures out into his first snow. Mom tells him not to go far, and for a while, along with siblings Sam and Sheba, he frolics in this new environment. Then a strange barking dog arrives, the pups scatter, and Ollie finds himself alone in a very white world. Some animals try to help him, while others hinder. Though there’s some real tension here, listeners will expect a happy ending, and they will find one, just as Ollie eventually finds his way home. The large paintings feature icy blue backgrounds swirled with snow. Ollie, looking a bit like an adorable stuffed animal but with real expression on his face, slips and slides across the spreads. With its short text and pictures that are appealing even from afar, this is a solid choice for group storytimes. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ilene Cooper

They ran so fast that Ollie became separated from his brother and sister and found that he was lost in the snowy landscape, way away from the farmyard. "Too whit, too whoo, who are you?" An owl peered down from a tree and told him to quickly follow his pawprints back home. He tried, but the snow was coming down quickly enough to cover them. "Swoosh!" He found himself slipping and sliding down a hill into the midst of some unfriendly fox cubs who told him to "clear off!" Was he ever going to get home to warmth and comfort of his own bed?
This is a lovely, heartwarming story with art work to match. The charming illustrations are adorable, and Ollie's expressive face adds just the right touch to the tale. This is a perfect cuddle up story for a cold winter day, especially when the first snowflakes start to fill the air. A new puppy (of the stuffed variety) and this book would make a perfect gift!
