A positive approach to the winter season. Compelling retellings of traditional stories from around the world, enriched with illustrations which add a blaze of colour, banish all dismal thoughts of a cold wintry day. -- Carousel, Christmas 1999

This book quickly became a favourite with children and adults alike/.../Tales from major world religions, folktales, songs and special customs are woven seamlessly into this most beautifully produced book. This is a book not to be without during the coldest, darkest days and nights/.../Every bookshelf needs a copy! -- Child Education Best Book Supplement, April 2000
