The tale of the toys' search for pretend snow, because Jolly Tall the giraffe has never seen any, told with exhuberance on tape, and designed to encourage young readers to follow the story whilst turning the pages of the accompanying "Mini Treasure Picture Book".

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- This story features the same lovable menagerie of stuffed animals found in Old Bear (1986), Little Bear's Trousers (1987), and Jolly Tall (1990, all Philomel). This time the toys are eagerly awaiting a snowfall. It doesn't come fast enough for them so they simulate snow with flour, suds, bits of paper, and pillow feathers (lots of pillow feathers). Their behavior is charmingly childlike and involves activities readers will readily recognize. The illustrations are executed in colored pens using much gold, orange, and brown that helps to give them an old-fashioned look. Additionally, the detail is such that the toys look more realistic that any two-dimensional creatures have a right to be. The Velveteen Rabbit would be envious. This is a great choice for children to snuggle up with and pore over. It might make them wonder exactly what their own toys are up to when they aren't around. --Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

As always, Hissey's ( Old Bear ; Little Bear's Trousers ) endearing cast of stuffed animals are rendered with photographic clarity and seem ready to leap off the page to be cuddled. On a winter afternoon, Jolly Tall the giraffe, Little Bear, Rabbit and the rest of the playroom menagerie long for snow. Since there is none on the ground, the resourceful animals decide to create some of their own. After cutting out snowflakes, Old Bear generates a small blizzard by throwing his paper scraps into the air. Bromwell and Duck ride a cardboard sled down a snowy slope fashioned from a bed sheet. When they land on a cushion, a cloud of "feather-snow" emerges. Finally, as the real thing falls from the sky, the furry pals huddle at the window, nibbling on snowflake biscuits. Though the tale has the animation and allure that Hissey fans have come to expect, it lacks the emotional charge of her original Old Bear . Ages 3-6.
