Paperback / softback
As the snow begins to fall just days before Christmas, Grandad helps Sara build an igloo in the garden with a small snow bear to watch over it. And when Sara wakes in the middle of the night, it looks very different outside. She sets out on an enchanted journey through a world of ice, but will she ever find her way home...
This classic book has been re-released by Little Tiger in a gorgeous 10th anniversary edition. The story is as lovely as it's always been and will delight junior readers, especially during the winter months. It tells the story of Sara, a little girl staying with her grandfather just before Christmas. They build an igloo and a snow bear and then when Sara falls asleep that night, she is transported on a magical adventure to the real frozen North and a real snow bear...
This special edition is beautiful, the cover is embossed with shiny blue text and foliage, which continues round the book on to edge of the pages, which have been sprayed icy blue with a white snowflake design. It would certainly make the perfect Christmas or winter birthday gift for a confident junior reader and will no doubt be taken off the shelf to be re-read for years to come.
