by Uri Shulevitz, and published by Farrar



The radio says, "No snow": the television says "No snow." But in this charming tale, as snowflakes slowly come down one by one, a small boy and his dog delight in the whimsical changes snow brings to the city. Uri Shulevitz conveys in muted ink drawings and washes the exhuberance that comes with a new snowfall.
