Product description

Charlie’s waited for snow his whole life – and now it’s finally here! But his mean mum and teacher won’t let him play in it. The snow’s all getting wasted! Luckily, Charlie has a way to keep it safe – by following his big brother Max’s advice, and putting it in the freezer! But that turns out NOT to be a good idea, and poor Charlie is sent to bed in disgrace before he’s even had a chance to play outside. Could his awful brother Max, who started all the trouble in the first place, turn out to be the best brother in the world – and help Charlie to make the best snowman ever? Starring an irresistible boy hero who is as naughty as Horrid Henry but oh-so-much nicer, this boisterous story from Whitbread-winning author Hilary McKay is wise, warm, cheeky and furiously funny.
