Summary

  • Preparing for a major winter storm, Bramble and Maggie anticipate playing in the deep snow and wind up helping trapped neighbors before sharing an impromptu block party of marshmallows and cocoa.
  • The sky is white, the air is cold, and snowflakes are falling, tickling Bramble's back. By bedtime, Maggie and her family are ready for the storm: they've shopped for supplies, covered Bramble's hay with a tarp, and filled the bathtub with extra water. But Bramble is too excited to sleep; she wants to be out in the white, wild world. Luckily for Bramble, she has a shaggy coat to keep her warm. And luckily for Maggie and her family and friends, when morning comes, Bramble can help dig through the deep snow that has most of the neighbors stuck in their homes. Soon the snow day becomes a block party complete with marshmallows, cocoa, and lots of friends. Chapter-book readers of the horse-loving variety will relish the camaraderie and enjoy the equine exploits in this cozy wintertime.
