‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Anna has never seen snow before. Then, one day, while passing the bakery, she feels something soft and cold touch her cheek. But just as suddenly it is gone. Staring at her through the shop window is a little white horse, standing on a cake. His coat is sparkling with sugar crystals as white as snow. Anna wishes very hard on this little horse and “like tiny stars, her wishes floated up into the sky and froze”.
This is a heartwarming Swiss fable by Bruno Hächler with lovely expressive artwork from Friederike Rave.
