Description

Barbara Reid’s award-winning winter classic is now available in paperback!

 

A perfect snow has fallen, and first-grader Scott and fourth-grader Jim have been daydreaming the morning away, making plans, doodling sketches of snowmen and snow forts, all in anticipation of recess and the endless possibilities of this perfect snow.

Barbara Reid uses her signature Plasticine style and blends it with ink wash panels to create a unique mixed media masterpiece. Drawing inspiration from the schoolyard of her own Toronto childhood and the ones she visits today, she manages to create authentic images to which readers of all ages will relate.

Perfect Snow is a timeless Canadian tale that will beautifully enhance any snowy day!
