Boring...this is either a knock off of "Snowmen at Night" by the Buehners or The Buehners stole this one...anyways..."Snowmen at Night" is SO much better. This was boring, dull and drab. I couldn't wait for it to be over. The pictures are just okay, the story is blah..oh well, I guess Santa Rescues melting Snowman and takes them to the North Pole to Play with his elves...give me a break!

A sweet joyful book! A wonderful winter read about the magic of Christmas especially Santa. Love how the snowman comes alive. This will be an annual winter read in our house!
