Large vintage hardcover sans dust jacket in very good condition. Boards have some splitting to corners [see last photo] but otherwise cover is very good; light discoloration. Tightly bound cloth spine.
Reads good as new; clean white pages with no markings. Beautiful copy!
Illustrated in full color, this is a wordless story. The pictures have "the hazy softness of air in snow." A little boy rushes out into the wintry day to build a snowman, which comes alive in his dreams that night. The boy invites him home and in return is taken on a flight high above the countryside.
