Reviews
★ "Inspired by a Yiddish story, author Marshall uses fresh language to reimagine this tale of the winter wind. . . . [A] sparkling story whose fresh words and deeply imagined, skillfully rendered illustrations give it a feel that is both contemporary and folkloric."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"Striking artwork fashioned from ribbons of crisply cut colored paper enlivens this retelling of a Yiddish folktale. . . . Discovering that rage can mask other emotions is powerful knowledge, and readers will be drawn to the image of the two children taming a gigantic force."--Publishers Weekly


"Readers should appreciate the cleverness and problem-solving abilities of her young characters, not to mention their empathy."--The Horn Book
