Yippee! It is a winter wonderland! What better day for Mouse and Mole to go sledding, whirl around on ice skates, and build snowmen together?
But Mole does not want to go outside. Too cold! Too windy! He prefers to stay as snug as a bug in a rug inside his nice, warm bed.
Mouse is lonely. Ice skating and sledding just arenandrsquo;t as fun for one. Then she gets an ideaandhellip;a Sno-Mole might do the trick! Mole wonandrsquo;t be needing his hat or scarf or mittensandhellip;or will he?
Sometimes even best friends want to do different things. But at the end of a cold winterandrsquo;s day, it's nice to know that your best friend will be there waiting for you, with warm mittens and all.
Tony likes to help his father at their small family restaurant, but everything changes when Little Nino's Pizzeria becomes a fancier place. Barbour's vibrant artwork is packed with color and energy.
