I have a new favourite winter book. I've been looking for wintery books as I like the idea of having a seasonal library (a la Soulemama) and I've also been looking for books with more arty illustrations, and this fits the bill on both counts. I stumbled across it quite by accident - but I'm sure its going to become a family favourite.
Its so beautiful. Its a very simple story about a little boy living in the woods who comes across Jack Frost one day, and plays with him until the spring. I just love the pictures - they're fantastic. Here's the Amazon link if anyone's interested: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jack-Frost-Kazuno-Kohara/dp/0230705413/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1291414552&sr=8-4
