"Tender and reassuring ... it feels timely for 2020, but has the magic of classic Christmas tales "

It is a fantasy in which snow angels, made by lying in the snow and moving your arms and legs in an arc, survive as creatures that protect you after the snow has melted. Sylvie meets her angel at the beginning of a long illness; again when she is in real danger; and when a wish comes true. This tale addresses children’s fears for themselves, but also their impulse to make others safe. Tender and reassuring, in the images and the text, it feels timely for 2020, but has the magic of such classic Christmas tales as The Snow QueenThe Snowman and It’s a Wonderful Life.
