On a snowy winter’s morning, footprints trace a path from a child’s unmade bed, past discarded clothes and breakfast dishes to the front door where they’re joined by excited pawprints. But who else is making the footprints and what are they doing?

In this delightful wordless picture book, the story of a child and a dog enjoying the snow is told entirely through following their footprints. Readers will spot clues to the friends’ adventures in the detailed and playful vintage illustrations by world-renowned illustrator Gerda Muller.

(Ages 3 to 6 years)
