About the book:

All over the world, down through history, people have turned "bad weather into great sculpture. Snowmen are hip, they're trendy, you could even say they're cool." But snowmen are the least of what you can build, given snow, time, and a copy of this fantastic how-to book! Build anything--or anyone--from Snowby Dick to PicasSnow to the snow-free delicious Meringue Man; the winter world is your oyster. This delightful little book celebrates the joys of the white stuff, and provides "recipes" for dozens of witty, beautiful, and impressive polar creations. Emphasizing use of natural materials (pine needles and cones, twigs, icicles, pebbles) and everyday household objects (toothpicks, wigs, pot lids, eggplants), the authors encourage sculptors to seek inspiration and have fun. Hard to imagine how anyone could not have fun creating a real, candlelit arctic hearth. Or an adorable, albeit prickly, porcupine. Has that artistic temperament turned sluggish due to cold and hunger? Try a couple of white chocolate-coated marshmallow "snowmen" in a cup of hot cocoa. Frankie Frankeny's wonderfully helpful photos of all these marvelous creations are interspersed with old black-and-white family shots of kids being kids in the snow. Don't wait for the first blizzard to hit--start planning a snow extravaganza now! (Ages 3 to 103) --Emilie Coulter
