Review
  • Toddler-PreS–In this third tale about Peep and Ducky, the two friends experience much that a day in the snow has to offer. Rhyming couplets tell the story of an almost idyllic time together. After racing on their sleds, the two decide to build a snowman. When the little birds have a problem with the construction phase, an argument erupts and they throw snow at each other: "Really mad," says Peep. "Monster mad!" says Ducky. And they both start to laugh. Lucky, lucky, lucky." Yellow Ducky and blue Peep never venture far from home as Peep's pink house is visible in the background. When Ducky's Poppa and Peep's Momma arrive, the foursome continue having winter fun. Bright and cheerful mixed media illustrations appear in vignettes, single pages, and spreads. VERDICT This simply told tale of the very best of friends will be understood and enjoyed by the toddler set. A good choice where this series is popular.—Maryann H. Owen, Oak Creek Public Library WI --Maryann H. Owen (Reviewed 12/01/2018) (School Library Journal, vol 64, issue 12, p65)
  • Two friends enjoy a realistic day of play in the snow, complete with sledding, an argument, reconciliation, and treats. Peep and Ducky venture out with sleds into the falling snow at the same time. They have only one run—a race—but it's a doozy, as they glide easily side by side until they encounter a bump and Peep sails into the air, landing on top of Ducky to finish the suddenly, thrillingly, very fast ride. Trouble arises when the duo attempts a snowman. "Ducky gets mad / and snow starts a-flying. / And after a while, / both are crying." But as they yell back and forth about just who is "madder," feet stomping and wings flailing, laughter gets the better of them. And just then, Momma and Poppa arrive on toboggans to share a few runs, treats, and hot chocolate. A hug between friends is the perfect ending to their very realistic day. The simple mixed-media illustrations keep the focus on the warm friendship amid the cool whites and light blues of a winter day. Larger, yellow Ducky is referred to with the male pronoun. He sports a green scarf and blue boots, while blue Peep, not gendered, wears a pink pompom hat and boots. Momma and Poppa are larger versions of their kids. Young children in wintry climes will certainly see their own snow-day play reflected here; the only thing missing is the putting-on-the-snowsuit struggle.
