Bear never asks for anything, but when she sends an urgentnote to Izzy to "please come at once," there is no refusing her! The weather is fine when the little chipmunk heads out with her lantern. But as the snow falls harder, she can go no further, until she meets her friend Scritch the squirrel who takes her above the snow thru the treetops. When the treetops end they have to stop, until Bingle lands nearby to fly them through the air .... and so the story goes until they all arrive at Bear's door. A funny book with beautiful illustrations, this story of friendship and celebration will delight youngsters.
