James Kochalka’s beloved Eisner-award-winning series takes a wintry turn as Johnny Boo and Squiggle discover the delights of eating snow — and the importance of staying warm!
Kids love to eat snow! It looks a lot like ice cream… hey, maybe it really IS ice cream! Johnny Boo and Squiggle are excited to find out, unless the Ice Cream Monster eats it all first. Armed with his gigantic and mighty Ice Cream Fork, he seems unstoppable…until all that cold snow in his tummy knocks him down for the count. Can Johnny Boo and Squiggle warm up their frozen frenemy with mittens from their secret mitten box? Or will they get lost in the silly blizzard forever? Don’t worry, this snow day is guaranteed a very happy ending!
“Kochalka’s style is warm and inviting. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the wide-eyed excitement from Johnny Boo and Squiggle. The story itself is funny and absolutely ridiculous, but you just kind of go with it. The characters are powered by simple and raw emotions. They’re curious and hungry, which is something we can all relate to.” —ComiCon
