When it Snows

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Review

Snow is falling, covering everything in white, bringing city life to a standstill. A little boy follows footprints until he finds a polar bear who can lead him to the place where snowmen live.

As the sun sets, he follows a shining light into the dark forest to meet the Queen of the Poles. She escorts him to a special place where elves, fairies and a giant reindeer live, not to mention a white-bearded man dressed in red. And best thing of all is that the child can visit this magical land any time he opens his book and lets his imagination fly!

This charming Christmas story about the power of books and stories is told through a combination of stunningly evocative illustrations and simple words.
