What a delightful book for children and us adults. Meschenmoser's deft hand renders the animals scruffy and captures the scrabbly woods ready-for-winter woods. The animals alone have the little color in the book, while they together wait for coming snow. Several of the two-page panels are worth the price of the book, including 1) the squirrel running up and around the tree, capturing what it is like to look at a squirrel in overdrive and in six places at once; and 2) looking down from the trees at the three characters awaiting the snow. The little bit of text helps carry the narrative without over-telling, and the illustration with it moves the easily and steadily. Great ending, good dose of humor, and kudos for Meschenmoser's skill creating a world we easily fall into. Bravo!
