Flying through the swirling, snow-filled skies, Snow Ghost searches for a place to call home, swooping gracefully over the whirling traffic of town, winding her way through the dense, tangled wood and to the top of the blustery hill. Then on the quiet calm of the moors, she sees a girl and a boy playing.

She breathes magic and sparkle into their play until it’s time for them to stumble back home to bed. And while shimmers of moonlight cast their glittering light, Snow Ghost curls herself round the roof of the farmhouse. She has found her happy home at last.

A timeless story of hope and belonging, perfect for sharing with loved ones this winter.

Review 2020 red

Snow Ghost is a beautiful book about a shimmering snow ghost who was trying to find a place to rest. She wanted a home where people would welcome her and have fun.

She travelled the land until she came across a farm with children having fun in the field. When she lays her snow she knows from their expressions and laughter that she has found the right place.

The book is told in a rhyming manner and even though it is about something ice cold the book gives off this warm, loving feeling. The words are kept to a minimum so it would be a good book for a new reader.

The illustrations are outstanding and really capture the essence of the book and the snow-filled land looks amazing. The dark colours are emphasised by the glistening white of the snow and the children are so adorable.

This would make a superb bedtime story for wintertime, especially once there is snow on the ground. I adored this book and I can see lots of children adoring it too.
