WHERE SNOW ANGELS GO, by Maggie O’Farrell and Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini, Candlewick, Nov. 16, 2021, Hardcover, $18.99 (ages 7-10)
A little girl discovers the magic of snow angels in Maggie O’Farrell and Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini’s enchanting Where Snow Angels Go.
One night Sylvie awakens to an incredible sight: a glowing figure tiptoeing across her floor, with enormous feathery wings wafting from his back. He’s muttering to himself, trying to remember his orders, for this is his first flight. Could he really be the same angel she made last winter in the snow? Sylvie’s angel says she isn’t supposed to see him. He has been sent to save her life, and when the danger is past, she won’t remember he was there. But she does remember. She thinks of him every day. And when nothing Sylvie does, no matter how risky, can make him reappear, she realizes he’ll always be there unseen when she truly needs him. —Synopsis provided by Candlewick
