Item description for Reuben And The Blizzard by Merle Good & P. Buckley Moss...
Overview The adventures of Reuben the Amish boy continue! This is a second book in the top-selling series (70,000 copies of Reuben and the Fire in print in the first six months after publication!). When the biggest blizzard in years sweeps across their farm, Reuben and his five sisters, his parents, and his grandfather all face new adventures and challenges. Reuben is worried about the five new pups. The snow blows so hard he can hardly see where he's walking. But the Amish way has advantages, too. The loss of electricity doesn't affect his family (since they've never had any). And when their neighbor man can't get his car out to take his wife to the hospital, Reuben and his father come to the rescue with their sleigh. The art of internationally-known artist P. Buckley Moss captures the color and character of Amish life with striking elegance. Heartwarming story, dramatically paired with Moss's highly acclaimed and endearing artwork.
