Snow Ghost from Tony Mitton and Diana Mayo is an utterly charming picture book, exquisitely told with the most sumptuous palette.
Snow Ghost is searching for a place to settle…
“a home to be happy, a place to rest.”
None of the places she passes feel quite right, until she comes across two children happily playing in the snow. They embrace this magic and welcome their new friend.
The gentle rhyming of Mitton’s narrative has a lovely lullaby feel, making it perfect bedtime material. Mayo’s illustrations capture that wintery vibe… don’t skip past those endpapers either!
