Frosty is just the tip of the iceberg in Snowman in a Box: Everything You Need to Build Classic and Cool Snow Creations by Nancy Armstrong, illus. by Adam McCauley. Bound with thick rustic twine (which can make it a bit challenging to turn the pages), the book offers step-by-step instructions for making all kinds of creations, including a ""Cool Chick"" female snowperson with pine needle-eyelashes and a rock-star snowman playing broom guitar; accessories in an oblong box include a felt top hat, red scarf and ""carrot nose."" Warm-weather dwellers will appreciate tips on working with sand.
