About the Book
One wintry day, a hat lands on the head of a newly made snowman and brings him to life. Hiding inside the hat is a rabbit, who listens to the snowman read a story to some animal friends. When the snowman falls asleep, the rabbit hops away with the book. But the snowman isn't about to let his story—or the mischievous rabbit—get away. The chase is on! Filled with charm and fun, this wordless picture book from a beloved illustrator lets kids tell their own version of the story, even as they delight in the action-filled pages.

My Take on the Book
Will Hillenbrand's book is a wordless story.The story is humorous and so sweet. You will enjoy sharing it with your young child. The story line is very creative. I am sure your child will want to "read" it to you too after using the pictures and hearing your version of the story.
The illustrations are beautiful and delicate. There is adventure , mystery, and problem solving by the characters. You and your child will certainly want to retell this wonderful snowman story often.
