An enchanting picture story book about a small boy who goes from Innsbruch up to the high mountains of the Tyrol for his Christmas holidays, and of his adventures there with his uncle and aunt and small cousin and the dachshund who went for a ski ride. The pictures give the impression of hand-crayoned drawings, such as a clever child would make, but in their very simplicity lies a subtle charm and skill. One of the nicest books of the year.
