Henry Hugglemonster: Snow Day by Bill Scollon and Colm Tyrrell -- OPTIONAL

Scollon, Bill and Colm Tyrell, Snow Day (Henry Hugglemonster). EARLY READER. Disney Press, 2015. $3.99. Contents: G.

In this early reader, based on an episode of the show, Henry and his friends love winter but they're afraid of the Snow-Grr they've heard rumors about. Then they see a scary shadow and are certain they are doomed.

Like many early readers based on television episodes, the plot for this one is pretty sparse and characterization is almost non-existent as it is assumed most readers are familiar with the show. This might work well in an area where the show is popular, but it can be skipped otherwise.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Caryn
