Description: Bestselling children's author, Julia Dweck, shares the magic of the holiday season in a delightful story of one boy’s wish for a dog of his very own. After a wintry mix of snow and love, two icy mounds of snow come to life with a bark, a wiggle and a wag. The wonder of childhood is born in this frisky snowpup named Frostbite. Children will be enchanted by the artistry of Robb Mommaerts, whose illustrations perfectly capture the magic of this imaginative picture book. Told in rhyme by a little boy whose dream comes true, this tale will warm the heart of young readers and any parent who remembers wishing for a dog of their very own.

So that’s the truth amidst the snow—
As day turned into night,
I found a dog to call my own.
I’m glad I caught Frostbite!

My Review: I love picture books that are told in rhyme. This one was so much fun and showed such great imagination. This boy really wants a dog of his own and discovers, one day, that his dream comes true with a small mound of snow. The illustrations are great and bring the imagery to life.
I read this one with my daughter and we were both enchanted. I remember pretending when I was young and I loved the way this imaginary pet seemed so real. My daughter really enjoyed it as well. This is a fun story that is sure to capture the hearts of many.
