Picture Books – Here Comes Jack Frost

A little boy is sad because all of his friends are hibernating for the winter. But when he goes outside, he finds Jack Frost. At first Jack Frost runs away from the boy, but eventually they become friends. But Jack warns the boy that he must never mention anything warm, or the spell will be broken and Jack will have to leave.

Kazuno Kohara’s previous book, Ghosts in the House!, featured a palette of colors restricted to simply orange and black. This time around she has created a similar look using white and blue. The combination helps to emphasize the chilly cold of the winter season.

The illustrations are charming and very appealing. The story is cute and, while not breaking any new ground, is satisfying and solidly good. I can easily see this becoming a new go-to book for winter story times or snuggly readings wrapped in a blanket.
