Blizzard BSW968


Blizzard is based on John Rocco's childhood experience during the now infamous Blizzard of 1978, which brought fifty-three inches of snow to his town in Rhode Island. Told with a brief text and dynamic illustrations, the book opens with a boy's excitement upon seeing the first snowflake fall outside his classroom window. It ends with the neighborhood's immense relief upon seeing the first snowplow break through on their street. In between the boy watches his familiar landscape transform into something alien, and readers watch him transform into a hero who puts the needs of others first. John uses an increasing amount of white space in his playful images, which include a gatefold spread of the boy's expedition to the store. This book about the wonder of a winter storm is as delicious as a mug of hot cocoa by the fire on a snowy day.

这是一个关于1978 年美国暴风雪灾的真实故事,由作者根据自己的童年经历写成。主人公小约翰第一次见到雪,非常兴奋,但是雪越下越大,把他所熟悉的街道和房屋都掩盖在了大雪中。在这场大雪中,小约翰慢慢成长为一个小英雄,他把他人的需要放在第一位,帮邻里们带回来了他们所需要的东西。
