The village is holding a snowman contest. Unfortunately, Anique's parents are too busy to help her finish her snowman. Upset, she decides to leave the house that very evening. On the way she has an unexpected but decisive encounter with a strange creature that appears to have stepped out of a legend.
Anique Poitras spins a dynamic and colourful tale of a budding friendship between two completely different beings. Céline Malépart's colour illustrations add a very funny visual dimension to the story, which is certain to entertain readers.
