We were pleased to create our first King Winter display, using the Elsa Beskow illustration from Ollie’s Ski Trip for inspiration (see below).
King Winter is a mythical figure, said to herald the first signs of winter and bring with him the ice and snow. King Winter is also said to move his court up to the North Pole in the springtime.
The polar bear (mentioned earlier in our book) guards the entrance to King Winter’s castle.
In the Wood
King Winter’s in the wood
I saw him go
Crowned with a coronet
Of crystal snow
