From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3-In "the far, far north, where snow is always falling," lives a playful and companionable group of snow ghosts. Their pastimes include snowman contests, ice-floe races, and moonlit dances. Sometimes, with much effort, a ghost manages to turn from white to another color. Landry's minimalist watercolor-and-pencil illustrations meld marvelously with the text. Whether speeding down icy hills on their bellies or wearing dark glasses to protect their eyes on sunny days, the ghosts have endearing charm. The book's small format and low-key tone are reminiscent of M. B. Goffstein's work. This title will work best one-on-one or with a couple of children, and will stretch the imaginations of those who take the time to relish its quiet humor.

"Looking like marshmallow gum-drops, roughly the size of a thumbprint, the snow ghosts possess a fanciful charm... [and] conjure the magic and whimsy of a fresh snow fall." Publishers Weekly
