Read an Excerpt

'No breath of wind,

No gleam of sun

Still the white snow

Whirls softly down'

As the day draws to a close, a family prepares for Christmas - decorating the tree, hanging stockings by the fire, putting out a plate of mince pies...



Outside, the world turns to white.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Walter de la Mare's quiet poem, Snow , about the emptiness of a white landscape, has contrasting illustrations by Carolina Rabei full of the busyness of Christmas, depicted in nostalgic screen prints with a limited, muted palette. The storytelling is in the pictures, the words a background, like snow falling outside a festive room.— Sunday Times (UK)
