Since its initial publication,The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children’s classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats’ legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peterthe star ofThe Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair,A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.
