"Poppleton in Winter" by Cynthia Rylant

Poppleton grows an icicle garden and ends up with an icicle fence instead. He sculpts a bust of Cherry Sue without explaining his constant visits just to look at her face. And he wonders why he can’t find a friend to go on a sleigh ride with. No one can go, because they’re all preparing Poppleton’s birthday party!

*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
