Children's LiteratureDoes the tall and stately snowman so carefully built one day look a little disheveled a day later? "His hat had slipped, his arms drooped down, he really looked a fright—it made me start to wonder: What do snowmen do at night?" When it really gets dark those playful round guys slide to the park. There they enjoy icy-cold cocoa before having races and acting like clowns. The fun continues and the snowmen play baseball with their brooms, have a terrific snowball fight, and take wild rides downhill on sleds. When they are tuckered out, they gather snowman paraphernalia to return home. Vivid and luminescent paintings capture the snowmen in their joyous pursuits. Readers are invited to look for hidden shapes throughout the illustrations. Join the frosty merry-makers in poetic verse and learn why their grins are a little crooked the next morning. Packaged with a plush snowman toy, this book is a rollicking tale to read aloud and savor. 2003 (orig. 2002), Dial Books for Young Readers, Ages 4 to 8.
