Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall, he sets off on an adventure by himself to the palace of King Winter.

Along the way, he meets Jack Frost, who makes everything sparkle, and Mrs. Thaw, who makes everything melt. At the palace, Ollie meets children helping to make Christmas presents—that is, until breaktime, when they rush outside for a big snowball fight.

Finally, Mrs. Thaw gets her way, and the lovely snow starts to disappear. Ollie is very upset and wishes it could be winter forever—until Spring arrives one lovely day when in her carriage, pulled by butterflies.

A new mini edition of this popular book is now available for small hands.

(Ages 3–5 years)
