Feeling bored with being inside, a little boy goes into the forest to build a towering snowman, in this charming fantasy for readers up to 7. When the snowman comes to life, the two friends play together and construct a full-sized castle. Then the boy flies over the treetops on a real dragon—or did he invent that, too? A fond tribute to the imagination and the pleasure of being outdoors, Deirdre Gill's spare text perfectly complements her dreamlike oil illustrations.
"Readers will want to reread this simple but meaningful text and bask again in the glorious illustrations of this splendid debut."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
