Snowy & Chinook
Robin Mitchell and Judith Steedman
Vancouver: Simply Read Books, 2005. 40 p.
Ages 3 to 5
Snowy and Chinook plan a birthday party for their friend, Tulip the buffalo, and set out on a late winter morning to find the perfect gift: the first flowers of spring. All the characters and settings are depicted using photographs of 3D puppets, cut-outs, origami and collages. Readers will find many surprises in this book, like recipes for pancakes and hot chocolate on the insides of the dust jacket flaps, or the original score CD tucked in the back. This is the third story in the Windy set: the other two titles are Windy and the Lost Kite and Sunny and the Hootenanny.
