When Sophie goes shopping with her parents Rascal is left alone at home. While looking out of the window Rascal notices something unusual outside; white specks are floating down from the sky. Whatever is it? Rascal manages to escape into the garden and soon he is playing in the snow. But after chasing a rabbit through a hole in the fence he becomes lost; everywhere looks the same because there is a blanket of white covering the ground. How will he find his way back home now?
Swiss author and illustration Marcus Pfister, famous for his ‘Rainbow Fish’ series, has created a sweet and gentle tale. Each page has blurry swirling snowflakes cascading through the watercolour illustrations creating the impression of a snowstorm as the snow gets thicker and deeper.
