One morning, Ruby wakes up to see that it has snowed in the night. Feeling in a “razzle-dazzle mood,” Ruby heads outside into the sparkling snow-covered world with her dog Rocket. Ruby decides that she is going to pretend to be a “gleaming-beaming snow queen” and Rocket will be her “knight in barking armor.”

Since every fairytale has to have a villain, Ruby builds a snowman who is the wicked “ice prince” in her story. Just in time, Ruby is rescued by “Sir Zac” and they set off to find the missing knight.

With its unique multimedia artwork and its delightful interactive novelty features, this seasonal title will charm young readers who enjoy playing “let’s pretend” games of their own.
