Synopsis

If you lived in a house in the woods and all your friends were hibernating you'd probably hate winter, just like this little boy. But one day a strange spiky figure appears and transforms the boy's world into a winter wonderland! How long will the magic spell last?

Kazuno Kohara's distinctive lino-cut illustrations and limited palette provide the perfect counterpart to her spare, witty storytelling in this stylish new picture book with great child appeal.
