A harsh winter landscape is the centre-piece of this story, as a little boy gets lost in the woods as snow falls. Collecting wood with his father, the pair are separated when a blizzard descends upon the otherwise idyllic scene. The boy takes shelter in a cave, and wakes to find all the animals of the woodland gathered around him in curiosity. An important double spread shows the faces of every different animal including humans, providing an interesting perspective on equality between species. The boy has a great time with the animals, and is included in all their fun. Eventually, the story resolves, as the boy is returned to his father by the animals. This atmospheric picturebook is an enjoyable way to consider the role of security, sustenance, and shelter in the creation of personal identity and understandings of home.
