Synopsis: "Look!" said Sam.
"Where?" said Pam.
"Outside!" said Will.
"Why?" said Jill.
"SNOW!" said Sam, Pam, Will and Jill.

It's a perfect day for sledding, so Sam, Pam, Will and Jill all get dressed in their warmest clothes, put on their goggles and helmets, and set out for their favorite sledding hill. But there's a problem: It's a school day! Is all lost? Maybe not. These four crocodiles have a few surprises up their sleeves.

Joyous and silly, and illustrated with verve by New York Times Best Illustrated winner Scott Nash, this is an irresistible tale of four friends who are determined not to let a little thing like school get in the way of their winter fun.

From Publishers Weekly: Although this exuberant book should probably come with a disclaimer-"Kids, don't try this at home"-there's no denying that Sam, Pam, Will and Jill, a quartet of anthropomorphized crocodile children, have hit on an ingenious way to take full advantage of a new snowfall. Posing as principals (they even put on dressy clothes to get in the right frame of mind), they call the local news station and declare a snow day. "All schools are closed!" announces the staff of Croc-O News. "Wheee!" exult Sam, Pam, Will and Jill, a few pages later. "And they sledded and sledded all day." Lakin's (Don't Forget) text is a model of comic economy, using simple vocabulary ("principal" is the only three-syllable word in the entire book) and repetition to create an ebullient, punchy rhythm. Nash's (Over the Moon) gouache-and-pencil pictures, often divided into panels to show simultaneous action among the four protagonists, giddily chronicle the events leading up to the principal ploy: the flurry of phone calls among the friends, the donning of appropriate snow gear, the crushing realization that school presents a formidable obstacle to their sledding. His crocodiles are nearly identical, but therein lies much of the dizzy humor-every emotion is multiplied times four. Even the typography seems just right, with large, sans-serif letters underscoring the staccato pacing. A seamless work of storytelling about a classic snow job. Ages 2-6.
