Synopsis

Little Fern's First Winter by Jane Simmons

A beautiful story that captures the magic, excitement and wonder of the first fall of snow. The snow is coming! said Ma Rabbit. What's snow? said Fern. Everyone in the wood is getting ready for the winter but Fern has never seen snow before. Surely she and Bracken have time for one more game of hide-and-seek before the snow arrives ...don't they?

Reviews

A gorgeously cosy tale ... makes you just want to snuggle and cuddle up together. Junior

About the Author

Jane Simmons

Jane has tried her hand at landscape gardening, futon making, teaching basket weaving and soft toy making but claims the only thing that has held her interest was the idea of writing and illustrating children's books.

Having travelled extensively with her family and living in a whole range of unusual homes, it is no surprise that her current home is hardly conventional. Jane, and her menagerie of rescued pets, live on an ex-fishing boat, aptly named 'Prosperity'. Along with her husband, Neil, she is currently travelling the waterways of France and heading for the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean.

The view from the wheelhouse of 'Prosperity' is the inspiration for Jane's books and while Daisy, gets into all sorts of trouble on the river, Ebb and Flo live on a boat very similar to Jane's and have their adventures by the sea.

Jane and Neil share 'Prosperity' with Gertie and Bertie the lovebirds, dogs called Daisy and Pip and Doris the cat.
