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 the reader reading their very favorite book to the very last page...the very last word.

Amy Hest's spare evocative text is a true celebration of new readers and good friends everywhere, while Lauren Castillo'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.

It's a simple tale of a boy and his dog but yet so much more. Amy Hest and Lauren Castillo take their young audience on a wonderfully descriptive adventure...The flow is natural and accessible for young readers and the imagery is whimsical and engaging. Kids aren't the only ones who'll envision themselves leaping into the pages--and the snow. You simply can't beat the message: love of reading and sharing that with a good friend. It's enough to make you all warm and fuzzy despite the snow." --Entertainment Weekly (Grade A)
