The Lovereading4Kids comment

A quiet Christmas Eve in the hospital is turned upside down by an unexpected emergency – can the hospital deal with a melting snowman? Things look desperate but then Doctor Glenda comes up with a clever plan…Hurrah! The ice cream remedy works. The snowman can go out and enjoy a wonderfully snowy Christmas.

A fun easy to read story for 5+ year olds with loads of action. Perfect for children who are just beginning to want more words on the page than a picture book offers. It’s been a while since something as good as this has been published for 5-7 year olds. Other titles launched to coincide with Melting Snowman include Choking Wolf and Injured Spider.


Urgency Emergency! Melting Snowman by Dosh Archer

It was a quiet morning at City Hospital. Doctor Glenda and Nurse Percy were drinking a cup of tea when ...A snowman is in need of urgent help. He was just standing in the garden and his buttons started to fall off! Can the staff of City Hospital save the snowman before he becomes a puddle of water? Hilarious and fantastic, hospital dramas will never be the same again - no matter how old you are.


'By gently subverting norms they will delight children and perhaps help them to overcome fears of their own'
