"Three cartoon children try to warm up shivery Sneezy--whose skinny carrot nose, spindly branch arms, and beady black eyes make him resemble Jack Skellington more than Frosty. Drinking cocoa, sitting in a hot tub, and warming up by a bonfire all result in Sneezy melting, followed by his request to 'Make me brand new!' Each time, the children rebuild him, contributing some of their winter wear, until Sneezy--in pink stocking cap and orange jacket--is too hot. But ice cream saves the day: ' Ã¢Â€Â˜This is great!' the snowman cried./ Ã¢Â€Â˜I'm not too cold and I'm not too hot,/ and I'm wearing clothes I like a lot.' ' Although Wright's verse too often strains for its rhymes ('I need to feel some warmth on me./ There's a campfire by that tree'), Gilpin's illustrations are quirky and fun. Ages 4 8. (Sept.)"

A snowman keeps doing things that make him melt, but the kids build him up again.
