On the pages of Book 1 Til The Last Snowflakes Falls, there is activity aplenty, Snowy the snowboy who becomes a snowman following a larger-than-life roll down a precipitous slope where he gathers much snow on his three parts, proves himself to be a true friend to the end as he aides in the deliverance of not only his friends but of all the missing.
Authored by a 40 year mall and store 'Santa', Til the Last Snowflake Falls has come about as a consequence of the questions presented by Little People and the answers 'Santa' gave in response to those questions regarding Christmas, and Reindeer, and Elves and the magic of Christmas.
On the whole I enjoyed Til the Last Snowflake Falls, very much and am happy to recommend the eBook for Middle Grade Readers and beyond.
