In a palace high above the clouds, a magical machine chugs and churns, making beautiful, identical snowflakes. When the Snow Queen leaves her daughter, Princess Ellie, in charge everything goes wrong and Ellie must hand make each flake! Can she make enough and will her mother be happy that they are not perfect?


"In a floating ice palace high in the sky, the Snow Queen demands perfectly formed, matching flakes. When Princess Ellie is put in charge, she makes a beautiful mistake, giving each one a unique design. Join them both in a winter wonderland of rhyming verses, helpful bluebirds, and frosty fun. Enjoy each special snowflake depicted in creatively textured mixed-media artwork, or follow the instructions for designing an original with scissors, paper, and imagination."—Foreword ReviewsWebsite
