Snowed Under and Other Christmas Confusions
Sterling Children’s Books
by Serge Bloch
Synopsis from Sterling Children’s Books:
Serge Bloch, the witty author and illustrator of Butterflies in My Stomach, Reach for the Stars, and You Are What You Eat brings his readers a touch of happy holiday spirit. Everyone’s a little snowed under preparing for Christmas: a storm is brewing, and there’s fear Santa might get stuck at the North Pole. But all it takes is a little decking the halls and trimming the tree to have everyone lighting up with joy. Bloch’s humor and unique art–which combines photographs and charming line drawings–helps make Christmas very merry, indeed.
Christmas morning and you know your kids will be up at the crack of dawn. Crack of dawn? Have you found your kids puzzling over catch phrases you say without thinking, taking things litterally? Snowed Under and Other Christmas Confusions takes those phrases and adds cute (literal) illustrations based on what might actually be going through a child’s mind. The combined simple sketches with photographic images ads to the real meaning versus fantastical imagination. The book provides a cute take as some of those popular expressions you might find yourself saying this winter.
