Snow falls all day, all week, all month! Sammy’s world is covered in snow. As he clambers up the mountains of snow, he imagines what might lie beneath — a black bear and her cubs, whales and seals, even elves mining rubies and emeralds! Finally, the weather turns warm and the snow begins to melt …

This simple but deliriously evocative book is a paean to that magical stuff that fills the winters of those who live in northern climates.
