It is snowy day and Pip and Posy are eager to play outside. Quickly they put on their warm sweaters, socks, coats, boots, scarves, and mittens and then they run out of the house. They happily catch snowflakes on their tongues and make snow angels. Then they go to the hill, sit on their sled and slide down.

   The two children are having a wonderful time until they decide that they want to make a snow creature. Posy wants to make a snowmouse and Pip wants to make a snowrabbit. In no time at all the best friends are having a big argument and it gets way out of hand.

   In this charming picture book the author shows young children how easy it is to get into an argument, even when you are with a best friend. Children will love the brightly colored illustrations and the charming animal characters. They will appreciate the problem that Pip and Posy have, and will be delighted with the story’s ending.
