"A seasonal treat, to snuggle up with and read aloud"

Told in rolling prose, with lyrical descriptions and charmingly decorative, child-friendly illustrations, it includes an opening paragraph for each place of origin, from Greenland to the Kalahari desert, describing its character and its winter traditions. Among the descriptions of ice, snow and driving winds we hear stories of, for instance, elder brothers who are kinder than younger ones (in The Apple Tree Man),of animals who share with each other (Rabbit’s Gift) and of the promise of spring (Brigit and the Cailleach).
