The Magical Snowflake

by Bernette Ford, Erin Robinson
This holiday season, enjoy a magical and timeless tale of expectation, anticipation, and wonder.
It's the middle of winter, it's very cold, and Ori and her friends want to play outside. But there's no snow! Ori makes a wish, and soon a special snowflake brings delight to an entire town. The Magical Snowflake is beautifully told, capturing the warmest feelings amid the frosty snow.

"Robinson’s layered artwork uses color and detail in surprising ways to deliver majestic scenes children will want to pore over again and again. Beautifully executed." Kirkus Reviews, starred review
