Ollie gets his first pair of skiis and uses them in the woods near his home somewhere in Scandanavia. He meets up with Jack-Frost, and some other colorful characters. The art-work is of a style and beauty long missing in childrens' books. Ms. Beskow's drawings are from an earlier period in children's literature, and are quite nostaligic for those of us raised with our grandparent's childrens' books.
