In this charming children’s picture book, Pieter Breugel’s painting "The Hunters in Snow" provides the basis for a heartwarming story about a young girl and the bird she nurses back to health.

Eight-year-old Mayken is a peasant girl who works in her mother’s guesthouse. One wintry day she goes ice-skating with some friends and finds an injured bird. Bright watercolors help narrate Mayken’s story, which concludes with a stunning reproduction of Breugel’s masterpiece. Young readers will learn about Breugel and his art as they cheer Mayken on and enter a world of snow, trees, and the simple beauty of a winter’s day.
