Twin moles Purr and Craw are born on the first day of spring. The newest members of their woodland world, they’re curious about everything. What is swimming? Why does mother speak French as she makes pancakes? What does father scrawl in his notebook? Do animals live in the sea? Why do grownups eat smelly cheese? How do we get better when we’re sick? What happens when we die? Every day is filled with adventure as they explore the forest and meet its peculiar residents, but home is always waiting for them, filled with the clacking of father’s typewriter and the sound of mother playing her upright bass. Each new encounter leaves Purr and Craw a little braver and wiser, and with a few extra friends. Who Will Make the Snow? reminds us that the world is always larger and more wonderful than we can see from our own corner of the woods.
