PICTURE BOOK REVIEW

Posted on: July 22, 2010

           Polar Slumber
           By Dennis Rockhill
           Raven Tree Press, 2009
           Picture Book, Ages 3-8
          
           This is a great children’s picture book that will make
           a child want to wrap him/herself up around a parent.
           The illustrations are so real they will make the child feel
           a chill, and will transform the child right into the story.
          
           The book is about a backyard snow bear who
           becomes an integral part of a little girls’s slumber. She
           explores the arctic landscape in the bear’s company and
           awakens to question the authenticity of the experience.
           Was her excursion based on fantasy or reality?
          
           The author wrote the book with a love and fondness
           of winter which shows through on each and every page
           of the book. The author was also the illustrator of the
           book . The pictures come to life with prismacolour
           pencil sketches against a grey, white and blue
           background. The illustrations are multi-layered and just
           breathtaking in their scope and depth. They are truly
           unique.
