Snowman's Story: Will Hillenbrand

Snowman's Story by Will Hillenbrand

One wintry day, a hat lands on the head of a newly made snowman and brings him to life. Hiding inside the hat is a rabbit, who listens to the snowman read a story to some animal friends. When the snowman falls asleep, the rabbit hops away with the book. But the snowman isn't about to let his story—or the mischievous rabbit—get away. The chase is on!

Filled with charm and fun, Snowman's Story is cleverly designed to let kids tell their own version of the story.
