The Snow Knows

  Author:   Jennifer McGrath  
  Artist :   Josée Bisaillon    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

The paperback edition of the award-winning hide-and-seek picture book exploring the wild animals of winter.

In this deceptively simple children’s picture book, a pair of award-winning storytellers share the joys of winter. A lyrical prose poem, The Snow Knows introduces readers of all ages to animals both domestic (a tabby cat by the wood stove) and wild (a slinking lynx; a choir of coyotes), celebrating wilderness and outdoor play.

Now available in paperback, the 2017 Marillyn Baillie Award-winning book for best Canadian children’s picture book is destined to become a perennial winter favourite for a whole new audience.

An award-winning children’s author from Moncton, New Brunswick, Jennifer McGrath has published two middle-grade adventure novels, and two picture books. The Snow Knows was the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award, presented to the year’s best Canadian picture book for children.

Jennifer McGrath is a professional writer and award­winning children's author from Moncton, New Brunswick. Her two Middle Grade adventure books, Chocolate River Rescue and White Cave Escape, are popular with teachers and students alike.

As a young girl, Josée Bisaillon loved drawing cats and houses. She enjoyed school and always returned home full of stories to tell (and to draw!). She pursued her education all the way to university, where she fell in love with illustration. Since then, scissors and brushes in hand, Josée has been illustrating children's books, magazines, and newspapers. Josée lives just outside of Montreal with her spouse, their three children, one hairless cat, and many paper characters.
