The Lovereading4Kids comment

A gloriously uplifting springtime adventure. Ferdie the Fox thinks there’s something wrong outside so he rushes round to tell everyone they’ve got up from their winter slumber too early as there is snow on the ground. Not until he and many of his woodland friends go out to the orchard to see the snow do they all realise the mistake ferdie’s made... It’s not snow but a blanket of gorgeous Spring blossom!!!


Ferdie's Springtime Blossom by Julia Rawlinson

Ferdie’s very worried. He’s just been down to the meadow – and there’s snow on
the way. He rushes to tell all the animals waking up for spring that they’d better
go back to sleep again. But might there be another explanation? Eventually
Ferdie and his friends discover that the ‘snow’ is actually blossom and spring has come after all!
