Description

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 award­winning 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 hide­and­seek 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.

Editorial Reviews

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.

— Canadian Children's Book News (Toronto ON)

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.
