One morning, Blue wakes up to find something wonderful in her nest: Egg! Or rather a snowball she mistakes for an egg. Blue puts Egg in a pail and sets off to look for Egg’s mother. Along the way, she and Egg become the best of friends. But as the weather grows warmer, Blue is in for a big surprise.
Not to worry, though. In Lindsay Ward’s timeless story of a friendship for all seasons, even snowmelt grows into something beautiful.
