Fiction: PS Because of the boldness of Keats's graphic images, this classic story about a small boy experiencing the joys of a snowy day works well as a board book. The shiny pages even enhance the effect of the collagelike art. Nevertheless, the story seems better suited to a picture-book audience. Horn Rating: Recommended, satisfactory in style, content, and/or illustration. Reviewed by: mvp (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
