A little girl enters the snowy forest wearing a vibrant red scarf and holding a basket in hand. But don't be fooled—this is not a story about Little Red Riding Hood! The little girl soon meets, not an incredulous wolf, but rather a courteous, white bear. When asked what is in the basket she replies, "Nothing. I'm collecting snow, soft snow." The bear then leads her to the very best snow, which can only be found where the moon sleeps.

Once they arrive, the little girl and bear dance among the snowflakes. He informs her that she can't keep the snow; it will inevitably melt. Regardless, the girl fills her basket with snow and the bear brings her home. After parting ways, she realizes the bear was right—the snow has disappeared, just as the bear has. With endearing characters and a simple, poetic style, Alessandro Lecis and Linda Wolfsgruber have successfully created a mystical tale about enjoying the here and now and the magic of the winter season.

From the Author:

Although the title seems to promise a parody. Lecis's a story, written orginally in German, has other intentions. He abandons the dread of the original story and reimagines the dark woods as a place of dreamy possiblity. The girl in the red scarf meets a gentle polar bear, not a seductive wolf and she looks for snow to put into her own basket instead of carrying a meal to her grandmother's. Rocking her to sleep as he walks, the bear carries the girl off to find snow that's "fluffier than the clouds, whiter than milk, and fresher than vanilla ice cream." "Wake up, we're here," the bear tells her as he lifts her high in the the air  and twirls her around. "it's time to dance." Wolfsgruber combines etching with washes of color and collage, setting the warm white fur and great bulk of the bear against dark skies and shadowy tree shapes, the girls red scarf adding a stroke of color to every  spread. Lecis reminds readers that stories are just that - only stories - and that they are theirs to remakes as they choose.
