In the midst of a fearsome blizzard, a weary traveler seeks refuge from the cold.
"Good evening, Father, I'm so glad I found you. Would you, by any chance, have a room where I could spend the night?" "Oh," said the old man. "I'm not the father of the house, You'll have to ask my father. He's around back, in the kitchen."
And so the travler is sent on a journey within his journey, arriving at a surprising destination.
Ashley Ramsden's eloquent retelling of a Norwegian folktale is handsomely complemented by Caldecott Medalist Ed Young's masterful cut paper collages in this unusual and haunting book, Seven Fathers .
