A Flower in the Snow, by Tracey Corderoy and Sophie Allsopp (Illustrations)
A beautifully illustrated picture book that celebrates the joys of friendship, A FLOWER IN THE SNOW has the look and feel of an instant classic.
Hardcover: 32 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky (December 1, 2012)
Great artwork can really make or break a picture book. Sophie Allsopp has a beautiful style that fits perfectly with Tracey Corderoy’s writing. The result is one gorgeous book!
I love the story, too. It is a tale of friendship and going the extra mile for those you love. A Flower in the Snow is truly an adorable book. My only complaint is the overuse of ellipses. There are far too many of those in the book.
