‘Blizzard’ by John Rocco

Blizzard is a children’s picture book written and illustrated by John Rocco. Although he has written and illustrated several other picture books, he also has an impressive body of work as just an illustrator. Blizzard is aptly named since it is a retelling of Rocco’s childhood experience in a New England blizzard.

What ‘Once Upon a Time’ means to me

It’s hard to explain how and why fiction can have such an effect on people, but we know it can. Otherwise, why would publishing books and producing films be multi-billion dollar industries? Fiction can provide us with an escape, characters with whom we can connect, an emotional outlet, or a chance to reimagine ourselves. Once Upon a Time does all of this for me, and more.
