A laugh-out-loud funny story about Milo, a lonely and misunderstood abominable snowman, who will try just about ANYTHING to make some friends so he can share his delicious cupcakes.

Synopsis

The Really Abominable Snowman by Valentina Mendicino

Legend has it, that high in the Himalayas, lives a stinky, hairy, gruesome, child-eating ...ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN! But, actually, Milo (as his mother calls him) is the very opposite - he's sweet, he's lavender-scented and he loves making cupcakes. He's definitely NOT abominable. If only everyone else could see that, too ...poor Milo is so lonely. He tries everything he can possibly think of to make a friend - he gets a makeover, he tries tweeting and he even tries putting his face IN a book but ...to no avail. Until, he spots something perfect: a meet-up group for misunderstood creatures! Will Milo FINALLY find a special someone to share his cupcakes with?
