Winter finally arrives and Sammy is delighted. The snow began to fall slowly, slowly over an entire month. Outside, the neighbourhood is completely covered in a thick, white magic cape. Climbing to the top of a mountain of ice, Sammy wonders what lies hidden beneath the snow. His imagination slips into fantasy, creating an enchanting world where polar bears rub shoulders with elves, seals and even Santa Claus.

The delicate watercolours give the impression of viewing the wonderful and subtle beauty of the world through the eyes of a child.
