Recommended for: preschool and up
Read in November, 2009

This might be my new favorite "winter's coming" book. The loose, sketchy illustrations are spot-on. Meschenmoser makes great use of wordless spreads and comics-like sequences. He draws the most expressive squirrel I've ever seen. What *would* snow look like if you were trying to recognize it, but had only heard the description "white and wet and cold and soft"?

Look for a fun visual joke on the final endpapers.
