A Mountain of Snow Excerpt:

It was a windy and snowy morning on Ahway Island. Sidney Snowplow had just woken up in his cozy garage. He felt well rested and ready to start a busy day of snowplowing! Sidney revved his engine as he waited patiently for his driver to hop in and start their fun snow day together. As his engine warmed up, Sidney enjoyed taking a few minutes by himself to enjoy the quiet morning.


Sidney loved to work in the snow, especially when it was freshly fallen. It was like playing in a pile of sugar all day long! Sidney loved how soft and fluffy snow could be, but he also loved how strong it could be when people built forts or figures out of snow.


After a few minutes Sidney’s driver came out to the garage carrying a hot cup of coffee. The driver opened up the big garage door and took a seat in the driver’s seat. Now they were ready to head out into the snow!
