From Publishers Weekly:

Winter comes early and with a bitter vengeance to the Snow Country. For young Mariko and her brother Kazuo, the harsh season signals the annual departure of their fisherman father, who must travel inland to find work until spring. But the advent of frosty weather also means that the swans come to shelter on the coastline. Mariko and Kazuo feed the helpless birds so that they won't freeze to death; in return for their kindness, the Snow Country Prince, "robed in a dazzle of frost-glory," appears to the children, offering these words of wisdom: "Whatever happens, don't give up." The universal message of this Japanese folktale is well-suited to young readers grappling with their burgeoning independence and responsibility. Wildsmith's ( Carousel ; A Christmas Story ) lustrous paintings are sparked by dashes of brilliant color--in the plumage of birds, woolen hats and the Snow Prince's vestments. Despite the icy landscape, this thoughtful collaboration exudes plenty of warmth. Ages 4-8.
