Publisher Comments:

If you were a snowman, what job would you choose?

Ten years ago, on the publication of Snowmen at Night, we discovered the secret lives of snowmen. While we humans sleep, the snowmen go sledding, play baseball, and drink cocoa. But now it's revealed that snowmen don't just play all night--they have jobs to do, just like the parents of human kids. Dentists replace missing coal from snowman smiles while pet store owners help pair snowkids with their very own snowpuppy or snowfish to love. The pizza man delivers frozen pizza, and factory workers make the coolest toys in town.

This fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Snowmen series is a gleeful, goofy delight. Kids will love spotting the silly details in each illustration, and the hidden pictures too. (They can look on the back side of the book jacket for a key to all that's concealed within.)

Review:

"In the Buehners' fourth snowmen book, a boy contemplates what jobs snowmen might perform. A snowman dentist 'might drill bits of coal/ To fix a snowman's smile'; others work as sled mechanics, librarians, and frozen pizza delivery men. Mark Buehner's inviting paintings contrast the icy characters with cozy indoor scenes. Though the story ends on a flat note, the abundantly silly details should spur readers' imaginations, and images hidden in each spread invite close study. Ages 4 — 8."

Synopsis:

An ape has escaped from the city zoo! No, its not Curious George. Its another charmer named Marvin, and hes celebrating his fifteenth year of silliness. This book was the very first collaboration for husband-and-wife team Mark and Caralyn Buehner, and their imagination and humor were already on full display. As gigantic gorilla Marvin manages to hide himself from the police on the subway, at the toy store, on the ferry, and at the ball game, the simple text and bold, funny illustrations are just right for this new board-book edition.

Synopsis:

In this lighthearted, funny follow-up to the previous Snowmen bestsellers, our young narrator dreams of a non-melting snowman friend who joins him for all of the year's events. They ride a roller coaster together, dive into a swimming pool in the summer, watch the Fourth of July fireworks, and trick-or-treat on Halloween.

It's hilarious, happy wish fulfillment that kids will adore. As Kirkus said of the first book, "It would be difficult not to fall in love with this rollicking flight of imagination."
