Snow by Marcus Sedgwick

Snow by Marcus Sedgwick


“a deft writer with a warm and confiding tone. He wears his learning lightly and is very good at conjuring atmosphere.” The New Statesman


Marcus Sedgwick’s beautiful examination of snow, and our fascination with it, divided into six chapters, like the six sides of a snowflake, and featuring the photographs of Wilson Bentley, who first photographed snowflakes in the 1890s.


Arranged with six aspects, covering subjects such as the art, science, mythology and language of snow, it’s an attempt to understand the powerful hold it has on our imaginations, turning us all into wondering children once more.



Snow was aired on BBC Radio 4 between Christmas and New Year 2016, as Book of the Week.

  • About Little Toller Books

    Toller n river valley in West Dorset. Recorded in the Domesday
    survey as Tolre, derived from a Celtic word for stream in a hollow valley.

    Little Toller Books was born in 2008 as an imprint of the Dovecote Press, a family-run publishing company that has specialised in books about rural life and local history since 1974. Little Toller was started with a singular purpose: to revive forgotten and classic books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.

    The success of Little Toller’s Nature Classics has enabled it to grow into an independent publisher, attuned to writers and artists who seek inventive ways to reconnect us with the natural world and to celebrate the places we live in.
