Farmer Barnes and the Snow Picnic

£19.99

Product description

It has been snowing hard and is very cold. Emily decides the family must make an expedition to the town to buy warm clothes. As they drive through the village in the Landrover several neighbours ask them to buy things they specially need. In town it snows again. The family hurry to buy their clothes; then Farmer Barnes is grumpy when Emily reminds him they still have the neighbours' purchases to make. On the way home the snow piles in drifts across the road. Even the Landrover can't get through and the family are stranded. How useful the neighbour's parcels to prove to be when they have to spend the night huddled together in the Landrover. Joan Hickson's subtle use of colour makes this winter story into a beautiful picture book.

Condition: Dust jacket slightly shelfworn with some corner bumping. There is some foxing to the page edges. Otherwise, interior pages are crisp and clean with beautiful illustrations.
