This book takes the reader through the different perspectives of the different animals that live in the wooded area. They are all very curious about who could possibly be in the woods. Comes to find out that a snowman has appeared in the woods and many of the animals find the snowman to be a nice snack.

There animals in the forest looking for stranger and all were curious and found a snowman that build by a human. I like it because it has a photography that very interesting and will use it to show kids the snowman picture. Suitable for k-3.

All the animals ask, "Who is this Stranger? Why did he arrive after a winter storm and what wonderful surprises does he bring?" Beautiful photographs illustrate the animals as they find the courage to satisfy their curiosity about the stranger.

I enjoyed this book. The title was mysterious and kept the reader guessing what the book was about. I loved the suspense of the book. Each page kept the readers guessing while slowly divulging clues and getting closer to solving the mystery: who the stranger in the woods was. Since the book had such a suspenseful feel to it, it was hard to not stay engaged. It would be a perfect book for a read aloud because of this aspect. I had never seen a book like this before. The illustrations were not illustrations at all, in fact, they were photographs. The photographs were stunning and somehow the author managed to have a perfect photograph that went perfectly with each page of text. This is great for young readers. The text was simple, but if they were unsure of the setting or animal being discussed, they are able to simply look at the picture and figure it out. The big idea of the book was to introduce young children to the winter season and the common animals seen during that time of year. ( )
