Waiting for Snow Book Cover

I thought the first post of the year should be celebrating something new –
how about a new book for a new year!

Waiting for Snow is a lovely story written by Marsha Diane Arnold. It's from the same publishing team that brought about The Quiet Book series. As with those stories Renata had super fun creating pictures that add another layer to the storytelling. She also had a lot of fun drawing some new characters including Badger and Possum, she can't wait for readers to meet them. But she'll have to wait a wee bit, the book comes out this November 2016.

"Badger cannot wait one more minute for it to snow. When his friend Hedgehog explains that everything comes in its time, Badger is unconvinced and impatient as ever. But Badger’s friends have a few tricks up their sleeves to try and get the snow’s attention and distract their pal in the meantime. Though in the end Badger sees there’s no trick—only waiting—until at last, it’s time."
