Once there was an old man and woman who didn't have any children. They watch their neighbors' children playing in snow. One day they build a snow-girl in their garden -- and are astonished when she comes to life.
But what will happen when spring comes, and the snow melts?
This classic story of dreams coming true is beautifully illustrated by Hélène Muller in a gentle watercolor style, while the lyrical text makes the poignancy of the tale accessible for young children.
