Ollie's Ski Trip
by Elsa Beskow
Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall he sets off on an adventure by himself to the palace of King Winter. Along the way he meets Jack Frost, who makes everything sparkle, and Mrs Thaw, who makes everything melt. At the palace, he meets children helping to make Christmas presents - until breaktime, when they rush outside for a big snowball fight. Finally, Mrs Thaw gets her way and the lovely snow starts to disappear. Ollie wishes it could be winter forever. Available in two sizes: full-size (10.75" x 8.63"), and mini (6.75" x 5") edition. Hardcover.
