A wordless picture book by an exceptionally talented illustrator/animator to follow in the footsteps of The Snowman.
The story of a father and his son who live by themselves in a cosy cabin in the woods. But, one day they are separated out in the beautifully falling snow. The boy is lost and falls asleep. When he wakes up he is surrounded by blinking eyes, a rabbit, a fox, an owl and all manner of other creatures have surrounded him! But with a bear hug he and the woodland animals become best of friends! But soon he misses his dad and so the animals bring him back home.
The father opens up his heart and home, and lets nature and love envelop their previously lonely existence.
