Linda Marshall’s delightful take on the classic Yiddish tale GOOD NIGHT, WIND, illustrated by Maëlle Doliveaux, came out with Holiday House on February 26, 2019 to good reviews!
When the exhausted winter wind throws a snowy tantrum, it finds comfort in the friendship of two young children in this lyrical retelling of a Yiddish folktale illustrated with stunning collage. Gentle language coupled with intricate photo-illustrations of collage dioramas tell this sweet tale about empathy and friendship. The visuals in this book are striking for their vibrancy, palette, and movement.
