This tender and moving story about growing up and expanding friendships displays the beautiful relationship between mother and child. Snowy and his mommy are best friends; they do everything together, just the two of them. Little by little, Snowy is growing up, and one day mommy teaches him a new game: making friends. Brave and full of heart, Snowy sets off in hopes someone might like to be his friend. Along the way he meets a cast of many strangers, including an unfriendly sea gull, a playful seal, a bunch of quarreling penguins, an old walrus, and a young polar bear. The soft fleece coating on Snowy and his new-found friend, and the many comforting illustrations of this gentle story convey the true meaning of friendship and love.
