Willow is a polar bear who likes things just so. She even irons her underwear and tidies her teacher! So when a storm covers her backyard in a smooth blanket of snow, she's determined to keep it that way — in spite of all the other kids creating a lumpy, bumpy mess. Will Willow realize that being particular is making her miss out on all the fun?
Kids will giggle as Willow comes up with increasingly complicated ways to get over to tell off her friends without messing up her beautiful smooth snow, and celebrate along with her when she realizes that wintertime fun — including a toboggan-like ride — is its own kind of "perfect."
"[Willow] tries yelling remonstrations to them, but they’re too loud and she’s too far away. She tries to get closer, jumping from her back porch to her swingset, fully aware of the consequences to her precious snow if she falls. Eventually, she jury-rigs a zip line to the fence, but the force takes out some boards, on which she toboggans wildly, making 'a crisp, white ribbon' in the snow that is, in her eyes, 'perfect.' Everyone happily joins in for some winter fun." — Kirkus Reviews
