The paperback edition of the award-winning hide-and-seek picture book exploring the wild animals of winter.
The snow knows
where the rabbit goes.
It knows the hushshush
of the owl's wing.
In this deceptively simple children's picture book, a pair of award-winning storytellers share the joys of winter. A lyrical prose poem, The Snow Knows introduces readers of all ages to animals both domestic (a tabby cat by the wood stove) and wild (a slinking lynx; a choir of coyotes), celebrating wilderness and outdoor play.
With whimsical hide-and-seek illustrations, readers will love following footprints and catching a glimpse of an owl's wing or pheasant's feathers, suggesting what appears on the following page. A beautiful book, destined to be a perennial winter favourite, and read aloud by a crackling fire.
Each gorgeous turn of the page introduces a new creature and a new winter wonder with lyrical verbal grace and masterful, eye-opening visual genius.
The Snow Knows reveals what Robert Frost might have seen had he entered those lovely, dark and deep woods on that snowy evening: the busy, mysterious and often dramatic lives of the forest animals.
