A deer, a squirrel and a mole know a secret.

They know that once a year a very special person plays a brief visit to the Deep and Snowy wood. Who could this special person be?

See if you can guess.

The Deep and Snowy Wood is a Christmas/Winter picture book.

Told in rhyme it tells the story of 3 animals making their way through the wood.

The other animals of the wood are curious and follow the three to see what they know.

At the end the happy secret is revealed.


This is a cute story with superb illustrations. The story is told in rhyme and flows gently while telling a story of a deer, a squirrel and a mole who run, dig and hop through the woods, until they finally meet Santa on Christmas day.

The author also illustrated the book and she did a fantastic job.

This would be a great book for little ones, and I think even children a little older would enjoy this fun book.
