Review Text

A gentle Japanese tale about two children who care for the birds, especially an injured swan, while their father is away for the winter fishing. The supernatural Snow Country Prince is grateful; perhaps he's responsible for bringing Papa - also injured - safely home. Wildsmith's familiar flamboyant art, his imaginatively observed creatures displayed against lovely impressionistic vistas, is handsomely showcased in this oversize volume. (Kirkus Reviews)
