About Perfect Snow:
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 for the first time
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!
