Product Details


“Singer-songwriter Workman uses the title track from a 2001 EP as the foundation for his first children’s book, a beguiling story of people coming together one winter night. It’s also a notable debut for Eckwall, whose delicate paintings transport readers to a remote cottage shared by a gray-haired woman and a boy. Together, they prepare a meal before a diverse array of guests arrive, including a brown-skinned family of four and a redheaded girl who rides up on a wolf, tilting an already-magical setting into something even more fantastical.” —Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

“The rhythms are beguiling and carefree, never once veering into sing-song, and it begs to be read-aloud, especially at this time of year when we gather with loved ones.” Kirkus Reivews

“The rhymed text reads fluid and effortless, and the illustrations are delicate and cozy. Beautiful bedtime story.” —Reviews in Chalk
“She brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman’s evocative lyrics; together, they create a world and a night that will enchant readers of all ages.” —49th Shelf

“[P]erfect leisure reading for a cold winter’s day.” —Midwest Book Review
