Eight-year-old Henry had heard just about all of Grandpa Pepin's wild stories, and he didn't believe them, either. How was he to know that when he and Grandpa went skating up the frozen river one winter night they would actually see the Northern Lights dance? Could he have imagined that later they would be visited by the legendary fiddler? When the wind is howling, this fanciful winter story might come to mind. If so, listen for the sound of a fiddle. Striking artwork in full color suggests a winter landscape in an earlier time. (Ages 7-10)
