Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a charming and poignant tale of Elsie, a girl who lives alone in the woods. Praying for a companion, she is sent a cat made of snow and is told not to let it inside. Elsie plays with the cat and they quickly become friends, exploring the woods and marvelling at the wonders of the northern sky. But after parting for the night, Elsie is too lonely, so she lets the cat inside to lie by the fire. Sure enough, the snow cat melts, and in the morning Elsie discovers the water has run down a hill until it gathered to become a pond in the shape of a cat, where the girl plays all year long, and the pond sparkles “like a diamond in the sun.”

Synopsis:

In a little cottage on the edge of the woods, in the middle of winter, Elsie prayed for a cat — an "unhungry" cat — to live with her and be her friend. Little did she know that her prayers would be answered. A giant Snow Cat was sent from heaven to keep Elsie company. Together the new friends explored and played all day long. But when night came, Elsie was reminded that she could never bring the Snow Cat into her warm cottage. How could she bear to spend the long evenings by the fire all alone?<P>A bittersweet tale of friends who will always be together.
