A deer, a squirrel and a mole know a secret.

know that once a year a very special person plays a brief visit to the
Deep and Snowy wood. Who could this special person be?

See if you can guess.

The Deep and Snowy Wood is a Christmas/Winter picture book.
Told in rhyme it tells the story of 3 animals making their way through the wood.

The other animals of the wood are curious and follow the three to see what they know.

At the end the happy secret is revealed.

My Thoughts:

This is an absolutely beautiful picture book! I love the artwork and the
simple, rhyming text. My kids love reading this book. They like all the
animals and the appearance of Santa and the Nativity. It is a great
picture book to read around Christmas.  Seriously though, beautiful artwork.

  1. As an illustrator myself, I'm somewhat of an "illustration snob" when it comes to children's picture books. Most self-pubbed authors are terrible illustrators, or they hire amateur artist and subsequently end up with awful looking books. But Elwyn Tate is not only an exception, he's actually created one of the most visually beautiful books I've ever read.
