In a dusky, snowy forest close to town, the world seems quiet, but life still stirs. If you pay attention, the narrator knows, you’ll see the signs: follow the orange flash of the fox, jumping, tracking other burrowing creatures through the hush. Playful and considerate of how close people live to nature, whether they remember it or not, this is a lovely story about biological cycles. Its illustrations, joyous and mournful in turn, have mixed media sensibilities—part collage, part cutout, part ink-and-finger smudge.
