Snowzilla
Lawler, Janet.
Easy Picture Book LAWLER

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

In a chirpy story of mild civil strife, a girl named Cami Lou constructs a humungous snowman (helpfully, her parents own a snowplow and a bulldozer) that attracts thousands of visitors. When angry neighbors protest ("A lady warned everyone,/ 'Make no mistake-/ when temperatures rise,/ he'll turn into a lake!' "), Cami and her brother work to have the snowman relocated. Working in acrylic and colored pencil, Haley portrays a playfully lopsided town, but Lawler's rhymes are often labored ("So Cami used e-mail and texting and blogging/ to save all their effort spent packing and slogging") and the ending feels pat. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
