"Let me tell you about my pet. She's as bigas a mountain and she's got bells and ribbons and she smells like a haystack. And she's got feathers round her feet."
Snowy is one of the most delightful children's books there is. It is about Rachel who isn't allowed to take her canal boathorse into school when the teacher invites the children to take in their pets. As a result she gets teased by her classmates. That is, until they meet Snowy on a surprise school trip to the canal.
