Title:  Blizzard
Author/Illustrator:  John Rocco
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Ages: 4-8

Synopsis:

One winter day started to snow,
and it did
                 not
                          stop.
At first it as fun.
But four days later, the snowplows
still hadn’t come,
cabin fever as setting in,
and rations were running low.
Someone had to take action.
Will one intrepid boy be able to triumph over a fearsome BLIZZARD?

Why you should read it: 

Author/Illustrator John Rocco has masterfully created a world of snow and ice where one kid can become the neighborhood hero. Detailed artwork takes young readers on a delightful adventure to the local grocery store when a much younger John uses his imagination as an Arctic survivalist to brave the elements as the family’s hot cocoa supply runs low. Does he have what it takes to save his family and the neighborhood from going hungry during the BLIZZARD?
