ACHUKA Book of the Day 9 Dec 2020
Indie Bookshops Book of the Month Nov 2020
‘A longer length picture book for older children, it has a feel of a contemporary fairytale and a real sprinkle of Christmas magic, enhanced by Terrazzini’s gorgeously detailed art and lavish production values.’ – The Bookseller
Best known for her adult novels, Maggie O’Farrell weaves an extraordinary and compelling modern fairy tale about the bravery of a little girl and the miracle of a snowy day.
Sylvie wakes one night, suddenly, without knowing why. Then she sees the most spectacular sight – a pair of wings, enormous in size, made of the softest snow-white feathers imaginable. An angel in her bedroom … a SNOW angel! He tells her that he is here to look after her, for Sylvie is not as well as she seems… Many months later, as Sylvie recovers from her illness, she longs to see her snow angel again. He saved her life! There is so much she wants to tell him, so much she wants to know! Will he ever come back to her? And how can Sylvie make sure that everyone she loves has their own snow angel, to keep them safe, too?
