Niroot Puttapipat’s stunning mainly black and white illustrations have the feel of detailed old-style silhouettes and create a wonderfully atmospheric version of this favourite song. A happy couple in Victorian dress dash through the snow in their one-horse open sleigh against gorgeous wintery scenes of ice-skating and cosily lit villages, finally arriving home for the warmest of welcomes. Cut-outs and hand-cut page edges make the experience even more special and it culminates in an extravagant and delicate pop-up. Stylish and elegant this beautiful little book – its miniature size is part of the appeal – will dazzle children and adults alike. ~ Andrea Reece
