From the Back Cover
The wind is howling. The ﬂakes are falling. The snow is sticking. The drifts are growing. The ice is dripping. The dog is bounding. The squirrels are scurrying. The birds are huddling. The children are slipping, digging, skating, building, sledding . . . Why is this all happening? It's winter! Winter is here!
