Deep Snow

Deep Snow is a picture book by Robert Munsch.

Robert Munsch, illustrated by Michael Martchenko

Ali and Kate are out snowmobiling with their dad when Ali yells "STOP!" She can't wait any more — she just has to jump in the snow.

Her sister Kate warns her that it's not a good idea because this is deep, deep, deeeeeeeep snow, but Ali stands up on the seat, gives her best yell, and jumps out as far as she can!

Ali disappears down into a deep hole in the snow, and when her sister and dad try to get her out, things just go from worse to worst to completely ridiculous . . .

This book was inspired by sisters Ali and Kate and their dad, an air force pilot, whom he met on a visit to Goose Bay, Labrador — the same visit where he wrote the book Give Me Back My Dad! Read more about the backstory in the bonus material at the back of the book! (From Scholastic)
