In this timeless picture book, a new reader trudges through deep snow with a mysterious suitcase in tow. He has something important to share with his faithful companion, who bolts ahead to wait at the top of a tall hill. Our small hero climbs higher and higher, until finally, he is there, too. Then he opens his suitcase -- click, click -- and soon the only sound in the world is the sound of him reading their very favorite book to the very last page...the very last word. Amy Hest#146;s spare evocative text is a true celebration of new readers and good friends everywhere, while Lauren Castillo#146;s pen and ink and watercolor illustrations, with their bold saturated colors against winter white, perfectly capture the wonder and delight of this magical day.
