A compelling story of sibling togetherness. Join Davy and his little sister on a snowy and exciting winter adventure to visit Grandma and Grandpa Rabbit!

A deep blanket of snow covers the wintery forest! Davy and Mia are unstoppable. They set out with their sled and a cake to visit their grandparents. Grandpa Rabbit tells Davy the story of when he and his brother were lost in the snow, while Grandma Rabbit plays a game with Davy’s sister. Davy and his sister head home with a warm send off of cookies and juice. But when they tumble out of their sled, the way home becomes confusing in the deep snow. Luckily, big brother Davy remembers Grandpa Rabbit’s wise advice—stay in one place, keep warm, help will come soon. And so, cozy and warm, under a large fir tree with glowing branches, Davy and Mia tell stories and sing songs. Until at last—the family tracks down the two snow bunnies. Davy worries that it’s his fault, but his parents praise him for his responsible decisions.

Davy in the Snow is the latest in the popular Davy series, written by Brigitte Weninger and illustrated by Eve Tharlet. Over 25 years ago, this unbeatable duo created the cheeky rabbit with a head full of mischief, but who is also helpful and compassionate. And it is precisely this compassion that carries through the latest loveable story. What better way to talk about the solidarity between siblings!

“What makes these books about this character so appealing is that there is a little bit of Davy in everyone.” –School Library Journal (Praise for Happy Birthday, Davy!)
