‘…this beautiful large hardback is an ideal gift for any Jackie Morris fan, and will appeal to adults and children alike.’

‘…absolutely and completely enchanting. The moment I laid eyes on The Quiet Music of Gently Falling Snow I knew I had fallen in love, I hugged the book before even opening the pages. I felt like a child again, it’s beautifully sized, it’s big, the cover stunning, it just invites you to pick it up. …The illustrations speak so eloquently and beautifully they brought a tear to my eye and goose bumps magically appeared on my arms. This is a book where you just sink into the pages, drift away on the words, and it feels like a half-remembered dream. I whole heartedly recommend ‘The Quiet Music of Gently Falling Snow’, it would make a perfect gift (even for yourself), and is a fairy tale delight of a read.’
