PreSchool-Grade 1–Mildly appealing artwork can't save this saccharine and unimaginative story. Sunny the squirrel is sad when her friend Millie, a marmot, leaves her to hibernate for the winter. One day, Sunny makes a snowman that sings, tells stories, and becomes her friend. Then spring comes, and Fred melts, but Millie awakens and returns. Sunny is happy because she now has two friends–one for each season. The full-bleed, mixed-media artwork is saturated with color, and the animals–dressed in human clothing–while a bit on the cute side, are appealing. The textured backgrounds and rich colors work well to bring the seasons alive, and the animals' faces are quite expressive. Unfortunately, the text is trite and awkward, laden with stilted dialogue. For a more successful take on a friendship put on hold when one character hibernates, go with Paul Stewart's A Little Bit of Winter (HarperCollins, 1999).–Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
