The Blizzard Wizard

“No snow?” sighed the kids one early winter day.
“No snow,” said the Blizzard Wizard. “I can’t find my snow spell. It must be here somewhere.”
“But how can we make snowmen without big round balls of snow?”
“So sorry,” apologized the Blizzard Wizard.
He knew a winter without snow was like a birthday cake without candles.

“Let me try to make some snow. I’m sure I can remember a few words from the spell.”
The Blizzard Wizard raced outside and wildly waved his wand:

White and fluffy.
Fluffy and white.
Rah-rah-rah! Sis-boom-BAAAAAAA!

Oh my! The Blizzard Wizard’s spell worked . . . sort of. White and fluffy things did fall from the sky, but not white and fluffy snow. White and fluffy SHEEP fell from the sky! The Blizzard Wizard mixed up spell after spell until he finally found his snow spell in a most unusual time and place. This book is packed full of silly spells, fun similes, and two-pages of blizzard facts at the end.
