Where Snow Angels Go

We rated this book:


Sylvie wakes suddenly in the night. She thinks there is someone else in the room. An ethereal being tiptoes around, and Sylvie speaks to him. He is startled, and states that she shouldn’t be able to see or hear him, and then tells her she won’t remember him when she wakes up. He explains he is her Snow Angel, the one she created when she lay in the snow and moved her arms and legs. He tells her everyone who does that has a Snow Angel who watches over them and helps when they are in real danger. But Sylvie does remember in the morning, and sets about to test her Snow Angel by doing dangerous things. Sylvie learns some interesting lessons.

Author Maggie O’Farrell has created a brand new fairy tale that sounds like a classic fairy tale with modern touches. The writing is simply lovely and the story is very compelling. The illustrations by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini are enchanting, supporting the story with sweet details and beautiful artistry. This is a story that could start new traditions in families with young children, the perfect story to read by the fire on a cold, winter’s night.
