This classic poem has been beautifully illustrated to make a wonderfully evocative seasonal picture book. From its opening lines- “No breath of wind,/ No gleam of sun -/ Still the white snow/ Whirls softly down-“ – Walter de la Mare’s poem tells of a family’s preparation for Christmas against the whirling snowflakes that will so magically change the world outside – just in time for the festivities.

Synopsis

Snow by Walter de la Mare

No breath of wind, No gleam of sun Still the white snow Whirls softly down As the day draws to a close, a family prepares for Christmas - decorating the tree, hanging stockings by the fire, putting out a plate of mince pies...Outside, the world turns to white.

Carolina Rabei has illustrated this classic poem by Walter de la Mare in stunning style. A perfect bedtime read that celebrates the wonder of snow and the arrival of Christmas.

About the Author

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent. In 1890, aged sixteen, he began work in the statistics department of the London office of Anglo-American Oil. In 1907 he published his first collection of poems under the pseudonym Walter Ramal, but he soon established a wide popular reputation in his own name as a leading poet of the Georgian period with volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921). He also wrote poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.
