Yikes!! That still close up head shot is shocking!

Have no fear, we have a call in to Viddler to see if we can change the cover photo of the video!

We’ll definitely look for this book. And I really enjoyed seeing all the preliminary sketches, studio shots, and other behind the scenes picts! Thanks for the extra work that went into that!

“Wonderful snow” … we do tend to forget that as adults, don’t we. This sounds like a fabulous book.

My husband and I were listening to this post about Snow, and the only thing my husband said was, “Are they from Canada?” I said, “How do you know.” He said, “Listen.”
