What a truly delightful anthology of ten short stories this book contains! They are beautifully illustrated and whilst all different they are written by different authors they are on the theme of a snowy night. There a a variety of animal adventures told in an appealing manner, ideal for sharing with children at bedtime.

The stories could also easily be used by teachers too. They are great stories in their own rights but could also be used to promote discussions regarding pshe, moral and citizenship issues. They could also be used to show how stories can be told from an animal’s point of view and be a starting point to encourage pupils to write from the viewpoint of a different creature. The illustrations are delicate and poignant; they could also be used as stimuli for children to examine before attempting similar art work themselves.

A great collection of short stories, I have really enjoyed reading!

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
