This is a classic winter story that we love around our house.
Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall his mother sends him off with two sandwiches in his pockets and tell him to be home for dinner. Ollie heads off into the woods and meets sparkling Jack Frost, who takes him on an adventure to the palace of King Winter.
