Snow falls all day. Snow falls all week. Snow falls all month! Sammy’s world is a blanket of white. As he clambers up the heaps and mountains of snow, he imagines what might lie beneath – whales and seals, a black bear and her cubs, or could there be elves mining rubies and emeralds?

Finally, the weather turns warm and the snow begins to melt, and Sammy finds a green surprise.

In this simple, atmospheric book, author Joan Clark and illustrator Kady MacDonald Denton create a paean to that magical substance that enchants the eyes of children in winter.
