The Sleepwalking Snowman
CHAPTER ONE WINTER IS WEIRD
Winter is weird, isn’t it?
At first, everything is great! There’s a chill in the air. The first snowfall covers the world like a white, fluffy blanket. Even the smell of winter is awesome.
And there are so many things to do:
like snowball fights, skiing, playing hockey, sledding, skating, and even making snowmen.
Then at night there is nothing better than warming up in front of a roaring fireplace.
Winter is the best!
At least it’s the best until the snow gets all dirty and gross. Then the streets get icy and slippery, and it gets so windy outside, you can’t even keep your eyes open.
The days get shorter. It gets dark right after school. And then there’s no time for winter fun.
If I thought winter in Kersville was going to be any different, boy, was I wrong.
me, Andres Miedoso, under all that snow. And that’s my best friend, Desmond Cole, with the snowballs.
And that’s the sleepwalking snowman. Yeah, you heard me right.
How did we end up here? Well, like I said, winter is weird!
Let me start at the beginning.
