Squeeeeee, this book was just too adorable. Not only because of the warm, fluffy story, but also because of the illustrations!
Meet Iggy and Martina, a brother and sister, who both are very eager to play in the snow that fell the night prior. They do the same stuff everyone does in the snow, snowball fights, sledding, but also making a snowman, or in this case a very big and fluffy snowbear! But as they walk and sled around they get stuck! This part was definitely exciting, and I was delighted to see how it ended. I did kind of expected it (given the blurb/the cover/the hints), but it was still oh so much fun.
And of course, like true parents, the mom didn’t believe them when they told her about their adventure and the sudden twist that happened.
The ending was slightly sad, but also hopeful. Yes, this sounds a bit conflicted, but you have to read the book to find out. I am not going to say anything spoilerish. 🙂
The illustrations! They were just so good, so beautiful, so adorable, so colourful. The style reminds me a bit of illustrations by Benji Davies.
All in all, this is one book I would highly recommend. Recommended: Drinking a cup of hot cocoa (with tiny marshmallows), all the while wrapped in a warm blanket. Then this story is even better and more magical.
