Chaucer knows that bears are supposed to sleep through the winter. But it's much more fun to stay up and play! Chaucer's first winter is full of snowball fights, sledding, skating, and all of the most exciting parts of winter. Bringing together the talents of Stephen Krensy and Henry Cole, this picture book celebrates winter and friendship, and is sure to be a hit year round.
Stephen Krensky is the author of more than a hundred books for children, including How Santa Got His Job (an ALA Notable Book) and Big Bad Wolves at School. He and his wife, Joan, live in Lexington, Massachusetts. You can visit him at StephenKrensky.com.
