Very Christmas Eve, a boy named Owen builds the very best snowman he can, only to see it melt away on Christmas Day. There must be a way to make it last, he thinks.

So begins an adventure that leads Owen to a magical place where curious animals study his snowman piece by piece in an attempt to remake a perfect snowman. But in the end, it is Owen who supplies the one thing they need the most. Have they finally found the secret to making a snowman that will last forever?



About the Author
Mary Kuryla and Eugene Yelchin stay at home to make picture books for children. All day long Mary writes in her writing studio and Eugene paints in his painting studio. Then they drink tea with honey in their garden. They talk about their sons, Isaac and Ezra, and they talk about books. And this makes them feel cozy and safe. But sometimes they have to leave their house and meet new people. And this is when they often feel like Emma in this book. Mary and Eugene live and work in California.
