The Last Snowman - by JC Little

The LAST Snowman, by JC Little 

Anyone who has ever made a snowman, and even those who have not, will cherish this coming of age picture-book. Because stories. And hot chocolate.

Available in paperback. 

Fun Fact: The LAST Snowman was inspired by my daughter and first appeared as a rough sketch here on my blog. The book is a revised and expanded version; way more drawings and bookish loveliness to curl up with.

Official description:
"This afternoon it snowed. It was probably one of the last snows of the winter, so it was lovely sticky snow…perfect for making a snowman." So begins the funny and poignant tale of a teenage girl and a dangerously tall snowman.

From the kitchen window, a mother watches her teenage daughter build one last snowman in the fresh spring snow. The girl works diligently, and, with some help from her little brother, she constructs a dashing giant. But wet snow and gravity take their toll, leaving a young girl who has perhaps loved and lost for the very first time.

The LAST Snowman is a book with timeless appeal for children and adults alike. Award-winning story artist JC Little has playfully captured a “moment” in family life, marking the ephemeral grace between childhood and adolescence.
But if you ask me, it's a story about a slightly voyeuristic mom.

Praise from awesome peoples: 
“Loved this sweet story! It’s not easy being a 14 year old girl… but thankfully mom can still make it all better. With the help of hot chocolate, that is.”
 – Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy

"The LAST Snowman beautifully captures the melting away of two seasons: Winter and childhood." – Annie @ PhD in Parenting Blog

"No one can draw a story like JC Little. If The LAST Snowman doesn't melt your heart, then clearly, you have a heart of coal!"
– Tracy Beckerman, syndicated columnist and author of Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir
"What a sweet little illustration/story - such a vivid snapshot of a moment between mother and daughter. JC is a truly talented artist!" - ML Philpott, writer & artist.
