As the rest of the town settles in to bed, one man, his dog, and a trusty snowplow get ready for a night's work. Follow them through slick roads and swirling drifts in this sweet, rhyming book by Deborah Bruss and New York Times bestselling illustrators Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson.
Reviews and Awards
“The text is written in the second person, speaking to the driver and the snowplow and encouraging them on through the night. The illustrations are beautifully made with multiple media, creating different textures that both pop and add depth. Strong lines describe the town, vehicles, and people, but the snow is made to look soft and fluffy. Delicate and detailed snowflakes are stamped over the images to create the effect of snow falling. This book shines light on a lesser-known occupation and gives recognition to the hard work done to keep our roads clear and safe in the snow...A great addition to any big-machines collection.” - Kirkus Reviews
“Bruss’s simple seven-syllable couplets depict the nuts and bolts of plowing while emphasizing the solitary aspects of the work: “Lonely plowing all night long./ Tune the dial and sing a song.” Similarly, the illustrators use deep-hued artwork—created using acrylic paint, colored pencil, pen, and collage—to evoke the storm’s hush and swirl, as well as the bright sparkle as the sun rises on a snow day for delighted kids.” - Publishers Weekly
