The Midwest Book Review: Frozen Floppies

Frozen Floppies
John Hope, author
Mark Wayne Adams, illustrator

Winner of the Royal Palm Literary Award, Frozen Floppies is a rhyming children’s picturebook with an underlying moral. In Floppyland, the Floppies (who appear to be anthropomorphic burros with floppy ears) have been separated by borders for as long as they can remember. But then a terrible winter cold freezes floppies into flopsicles. Can the floppies learn to cooperate and work together before they’re all frozen stiff? Gentle color illustrations add a delightful touch to this heartwarming tale, enthusiastically recommended for storytime. The inside of the dust jacket also has cut-out patterns for a simple “make your own floppy” sewing project!
