Once Jenny settles on Bartholomew as the perfect name for her snowman and puts a hat on his head, he begins to dance around and the two are ushered into a world of make-believe. Jenny enjoys herself immensely until she begins to wonder about the nature of Bartholomewís imagination. Her musings bring the pair back to earth where Jenny sets out to give her snowman the best time a snowman has ever hadÖ while thereís still time.

"Frosty is a stupid name for a snowman. At least that’s what Jenny Whitehouse thinks. It’s like naming a dog Furry. Or naming a fish Wetty. Or naming a slug Slimy.

Jenny’s snowman deserves a good name. No, a great name."
