One of the most magical of all wintertime songs gets an enchanting interpretation--including a special recording by the incomparable Kenny Loggins--in this charming new picture book.

First recorded over sixty years ago, "Frosty the Snowman" became an instant holiday classic, winning children's hearts and inspiring both an animated film and a long-running television special. Singers such as Gene Autry (the first), the Ronettes, Willie Nelson, and even the Chipmunks have recorded this simple-but-joyful tale of a snowman--with a corncob pipe and a button nose--who comes to life when a magical top hat is put on his head. To everyone's delight, Frosty laughs, runs, and plays. And even though he melts away once the sun comes out, the song still ends happily, with Frosty waving good-bye and assuring his young friends not to cry because "I'll be back again some day."

Featuring spectacular art by Wade Zahares, whose WINDOW MUSIC was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, and a CD, with the title song and two others--"Cyndi" and "Fishin Blues"--from Kenny Loggins, this sparkling picture book will captivate young readers. It's the perfect gift for under the tree or a stocking--and wonderful for parents and children to share on a chilly winter's night. Just pop in the CD, curl up under a blanket, look at the pictures with their bright holiday colors, and the story will work its wonder.
