Anyone who has ever made an angel in the snow or reveled in winter"the king of showmen"will delight in this collection of stories, verse and activities. Although some poems are better than others, this is nonetheless a strong collection, representing such writers as Gwendolyn Brooks, Ogden Nash, Isaac Bashevis Singer, John Ciardi and Myra Cohn Livingston. Teachers and parents will appreciate the bibliography of books about snow at the end of the volume, and children will enjoy making "Snow Muffins from Northern Canada," or reading Yoshiko Uchida's tale of the Jizo statues that lumber through the snow to repay an old man's kindness. Tomes's paintings, varied and beautifully designed, etch black shadows on white pages with graceful charm.
