In this paperback reissue of a long out-of-print winter tale (originally titled A Starlit Somersault Downhill),Caldecott Medal winner Jerry Pinkney's rich watercolors create a cozy winter world that perfectly complements Newbery Medal winner Nancy Willard's charming poetry.- quoted from Goodreads
This is a beautiful illustrated story that follows a hare who wants nothing more than to run and hop through theapproaching winter, rather than laying in a cave with his friend bear. While I was reading this, I swear this is a story I read when I was younger, and in looking into this story I found this is a re-issue of a long out of print classic tale. It's a wonderful story with some fabulous illustrations.
