Summary

Summary

Who will win the battle of boy against blizzard?

Freezing wind.

Bone-chilling ice.

Knee-deep snow drifts.

A lone figure battles for every step in a terrible storm, determined to reach the distant Pole. Nothing will stop him from reaching his goal--except his own overactive imagination.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-Despite a raging blizzard, a boy valiantly trudges toward his destination, until his friends find him and announce that school has been canceled. Swirling watercolors complement this humorous ode to an overactive imagination. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
