Summary from Amazon.co.uk:

When everything grinds to a halt because of the snow, one small boy and his teddy bear refuse to allow the weather to spoil their fun. They embark on an amazing journey in which they ride a polar bear and meet huge snowmen, an ice queen, fairies, elves, a giant reindeer and Father Christmas.


And at the very end of the story, in a wonderfully cosy and festive fireside scene, there's a clever twist - he has simply become immersed in the magical scenes of his favourite book.

I've never really been a reviewer of picture books, and I haven't mentioned many on my blog, but I *need* to read this one! I'm not ashamed to say I've been stalking Richard Collingridge's blog and am a little bit (see: a lot) in love with his artwork and When It Snows looks and sounds like a beautiful book. I think my mum will enjoy this book too so she'll be reading it after me!
