1999 Caldecott Medal Winner

Beautiful woodcut and water color illustrations adorn this book about Wilson Bentley, the first person to photograph snow flakes. It's a passionate children's biography about a real man who spent more money than he made chasing after a hidden beauty that he felt needed to be shared with the world. In the back is a real photograph of Bentley with some of his amazing snowflake images at the bottom of the page.
