It is a snowy day and Molly Mouse has decided that she is going to make “the biggest snowman in the world.” She rolls and rolls a ball of snow and her ball of snow gets heavier and heavier as she puffs her way up the hill. Then two little mice, Sam and Pip, offer to help and soon the three of them are pushing the ball of snow up the hill.

   At the top of the hill the mice lose control of the snowball, which starts to roll downhill. Thankfully, it comes to rest against a tree without damaging itself or anything else. The problem the mice now face is that their snowball is so big that they cannot move it. How are they doing to make their snowman?

   In this charming story children will meeta trio of mice who, despite their small size and unforeseen obstacles, manage to create something special by working together. Sweet pictures and a glittery surprise on the last page make this a perfect seasonal board book to share with a small child.
