You might never build another snowman after reading these stories.

If you have ever cast an uncomfortable glance over your shoulder when passing the silent snowy sentinels that stand looking at you as you pass on the icy sidewalk, if you've ever questioned what might really happen if the old silk hat placed on Frosty the Snowman's head was truly magic, then these two dark humor snowman tales by Mark Leslie are for you.

Why does that classic song always portray a jolly, happy snowman dancing around and celebrating life? What if, once the kids placed that old silk hat on Frosty's head, it wasn't quite the magical experience?

In the middle of March a middle-aged man frustrated with the benign activity of filling out his annual tax forms is confronted with a bizarre event - two hulking creatures appear in a pick up truck and are intent on kidnapping the snowman from the front yard.

I liked both of these stories. Writing about snowmen is both different and unique. I hope he writes some more snowmen stories.

2 shorts about the horrors of being a snowman, plus the author gives us the lowdown on each story, and then we get a sample of another book called Spirits. As for the two shorts, not bad but not great, just an ok read.
