Lily the little princess loves to dance with her animal friends in the summer. But when winter comes her playmates all go to sleep, or fly away to warmer places. In spring, Lily sets off through the forest in search of someone like her, someone who also wants to play in the winter.

Lily is helped on her way by an old tree, a badger, and a hedgehog, until she happily discovers her perfect companion.

This enchanting, simple tale and its beautiful illustrations lead into a world among the flowers that will capture any child’s imagination.

(From 3 to 6 years)

“This sweet, small and simple German import will probably make children, especially girls, smile.... The gentle undercurrent of the search for a soul mate should resonate with even very young children, and the glorious dandelions, snails, raspberries and apple blossoms deserve repeated visits.”
