A beloved story, now available in English, from Japanese master of children’s book illustration Kazuo Iwamura
When spring comes, it melts the snow. Where will all the water go?
The first harbingers of spring can be seen in the forest—as the wet snow begins to melt. The little squirrels Mick, Mack, and Molly can’t believe that snow can turn into water. That is, until they discover a floating tree and use it as a raft.
This gentle adventure, told in rhyme, is a wonderful celebration of nature and friendship.
