A luminous wordless story begins with a fox wandering into a village on a cold, silvery winter night. Chased off by adults, the fox takes shelter in a greenhouse, giving birth to four kits. A child who saw the fox go inside brings it a basket of food. Later, the fox and her kits slip through the sleeping child’s bedroom window with gifts of their own. Enchanting cut paper and painted illustrations convey the magic of the winter world and the power of kindness in this book that will elicit sleepy sighs of pleasure. Although no words are needed, the simple, eloquent epigraph states, “On the fresh snow, / as in my heart, footprints, traces.” Yes. (Ages 2–6)
