One snowy night, Peter is fast asleep in his cozy house when he hears knocking at his door. During the storm he has three visitors, but when he wakes the next morning, they are all gone. Was it just a dream? A clever tale of trust with a twist! With charming watercolor illustrations throughout, the story has a serious side but shows a lighter humorous side as well.

Praise For…

"A sudden snowstorm leaves forest animals out in the cold.Peter's small house sits 'all draped in white.' He's snug in bed in his white nightshirt when he hears a knock at the door. Peter looks like a Maurice Sendak child all grown up . . . . the book captures a wintry mood and is handsomely designed . . . quiet and nifty." —Kirkus Reviews
