About this book


Joan Clark • Kady MacDonald Denton

A beautiful, atmospheric tale of winter from Joan Clark and Kady MacDonald Denton.

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.
