Susan Wheeler lives in the Texas Hill Country with her husband and four children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–Oliver and Emily Boxwood, bunny siblings from a popular line of greeting cards, figurines, etc., are thrilled to wake up on a snow-down-your-neck day, a play-till-your-toes-are froze day! After school is canceled, they set off to Windy Hill to try out Oliver's new red toboggan. With youthful enthusiasm and single-minded focus, the bunnies are oblivious to the fact that many animals' homes were damaged in the storm. Oliver has a hard time sharing his prized sled, and Emily grumpily retaliates, pelting him with snowballs from her frozen fortress. At lunch, their mother's gentle reminder that Sharing is a special pleasure...Giving makes for twice the treasure.... sinks in and they rise to the occasion by assisting the squirrels to rebuild their home. While the message is a bit heavy-handed, the characters' realistic emotions and the credible nature of the sibling relationship temper the point. The heavy, embossed pages with blue filigree borders nicely frame the Victorian-style watercolor illustrations that are nostalgic and endearing, making this title a good choice for cozy lap reading.–Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA
