A humourous, cute story about the animals waiting for the first snowfall and mistaking various found objects for snow. I love the illustrations, particularly the squirrel, who is portrayed as looking as tired as he feels (or he went through a leaf blower). A good read for children to set the mood for late Autumn/early Winter.

Squirrel waits with the anticipation a young child feels for his first snow. The beautiful pencil drawings are full of detail, and are purposefully given a very scrawled out appearance to depict the type of animal a squirrel is, in other words an animal that scurries around. This is most apparent when squirrel does his exercise, and dashes around a tree. The illustrations for all the animals to follow also have slight stylistic differences; Porcupine's is sharper, Bear's is rougher, etc. All of these hibernating creatures use various methods to attempt to stay awake. Some of which put them in very silly poses. As they do not know what snow is they find various objects that fit its description, but once it really comes, they have a lot of fun together. This story is only made possible by the illustrations it has, for they provide all of its character and charm.
