Once Upon a Snowstorm by Richard Johnson

In this story told exquisitely entirely through pictures, a boy and his father leave their cosy home with its log fire and venture out into the snow-filled woods. The shapes of the snowflakes take the forms of running deer, flying birds and fleeing foxes, prefiguring what will happen when the pair get separated in the snowstorm and the animals of the forest come to the boy’s rescue, sheltering and succouring him in a cave. This book is included on our Winter booklist. For more wordless picture books see our booklist
