In this offering from the acclaimed creator of A Book of Sleep (2009), a white rabbit observes the preparations that many outdoor creaturesÃ¢ÂÂbirds, bears, squirrels, and sheep, among othersÃ¢ÂÂare making for winter. Each animal deals with the weather in its own way: flying or swimming away, hibernating, staying warm in its wool, gathering food, or conserving its energy. Change comes along at the very end when "the snow has melted and the trees are in bloom," and the rabbit, with a wink and a smile, turns to brown. The short prose sentences stand out well on pages featuring beautiful, digitally touched, textured paintings, which have a range of colour, pattern, depth, and style often reminiscent of batik fabric. A sophisticated, accessible, and appealing look at winter survival. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Andrew Medlar --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 2011: "Done in ink and oils, overlaid and enhanced digitally with various shapes and layers, the art is vibrant and sports unusual colors with whimsical details. A lovely selection to share with younger children." From the Hardcover edition.
