Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- One cold, snowy night, a kindhearted park attendant finds his hospitality stretched to the limit as one pathetic, shivering forest animal after another asks to share his bed. The result--too many animals, not enough room. Just as Percy tries to sort out the tangled bedclothes, the animals panic upon hearing unearthly scratching from below the floor. Not to worry--it's only a mole, also seeking warmth, but during that intervening time each animal has discovered a cozy niche in Percy's messy quarters ideally suited to its needs. The illustrations are lighthearted and the penultimate scene of the cluttered room is a wealth of eye-catching details. Percy's bulletin board, with notes from Santa and an invitation from H. R. H. reveal Butterworth's whimsical sense of humor. While not breaking any new ground, this is an ingratiating if not exceptional wintertime selection. --Phyllis G. Sidorsky, National Cathedral School, Washington, DC

Format: Hardcover
Excellent first book from Nick Butterworth introducing the kind, lovable character Percy the park keeper. A fun story in which Percy is visited by animals in the park, who all need a place to sleep because of the cold. Lots of fun here, as Percy lives in a little hut which soon becomes crowded. Have fun with animal voices as you read to your little ones. Cute surprise at the end as a strange noise is heard... the animals are scared, then they find out it's only someone they all know. Charming pictures that please parents and children, lots to look at and a blast for you to read with a little one.

Warmth of friends on cold winter days complete with hotchoc. June 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought the book merely just looking at the pictures, they are so beautiful. The story itself, even better: based around a circle of friends of Percy the park keeper on a cold winter night. You can see and feel the warmth of Percy's house that he shares with all his friends. Easy to read and mix with soundeffects that children love and easy to follow for as yound as one year olds. Our book is falling apart from overuse but we just cannot put it down. The book is a part of four seasons on the Park. Same friends later appear in other stories that we love; the other books represent spring, summer and autumn.

Great Book Dec 4 2009
By Thin Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this to read to my grandkids,but I probably like it even better than they do. It's a gentle book with gentle and, to my eye, beautiful illustrations. Percy's hut looks so cozy (cosy) that I wouldn't mind spending some time in there myself on a snowy evening.

I have bought another Percy book, and have my eye on a third one for Christmas, but so far One Snowy Night is still my favorite.

My son loves this book July 8 2009
By tob2009 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son received this book for Christmas and he loves the story and the pictures and we love reading it to him. I recently read it to the kids who attend his preschool and they loved it and thought it was funny. They especially loved searching for animals and other items in the poster at the back of the book. I think the poster is a fantastic touch and a good learning activity also.

perfect for pre-schoolers Jan. 13 2014
By Alicia A. Keller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach pre-school and this was the perfect story for our winter play. A story of love, care and some fun. The children love to dress up and perform as animals. The story is easily adapted to your students needs, wishes and capabilities. I gave each of the children a copy for Christmas.
