A Treasury of Wintertime Tales
A Treasury of Wintertime Tales celebrates the rich storytelling traditions of wintertime with 13 seasonal tales dating from 1823 to 1972, each paired with an inspiring illustration. The perfect addition to evenings of hot chocolate and blankets, this is a heartwarming collection of winter adventure, community, and culture, drawn from across Europe, Russia, and North and Central America.
Despite its chilly weather and barren landscapes, wintertime has inspired some of the most magical and heartwarming stories in history. Featuring authors and illustrators of American, German, Hungarian, Italian, Mexican, Norwegian, Russian, and Swedish descent, it includes stories about playful snowflakes that have come to life, losing one’s mittens, encounters with the Sami people in Northern Scandinavia, celebrating the Chinese New Year, and more.
Each tale has been chosen for its inspiring artwork and soulful plot, resulting in a carefully curated collection of adventure, community, and culture.
