About the Author

Wong Herbert Yee is the author and illustrator of Who Likes Rain?, Fireman Small and Big Black Bear, among other books. Born in Detroit, Michigan, one of his favorite memories of childhood is of leaving the first tracks on fresh-fallen snow. He also remembers his first grade teacher tacking one of his drawings on the bulletin board--ever since then, he's been an artist. He studied printmaking at Wayne State University. He lives with his wife and daughter in Troy, Michigan.

Reviews

"The simple rhyming text encourages chanting along; Yee's colored-pencil illustrations are meticulously drawn." --The Horn Book Magazine

"The gentle, rhyming text makes an ideal read-aloud, and young listeners will chime in on the repeated phrases." --School Library Journal

"This unassuming book will be enjoyed for its petite trim size, its wintry charm, and the gently humorous solution to its small mystery." --Booklist

"Thanks to Yee's austere, feathery strokes, which resemble colored pencils on textured paper, readers will feel all the invigorating chill and quiet beauty of winter." --Publishers Weekly

"The soft illustrations provide a comfortable setting for the story and a feeling of safety and happiness. . . . Young children will enjoy this tale of safe adventure and discovery on one's own, with animal companions and an afternoon snack at the end." --Armchair Interviews
