In this first book, the woman of the house finds a messy Snowman at a garage sale, and buys him for 25 cents. She gives him the name "The Disheveled Snowman." At Christmas, the woman takes him out of the Christmas box as she decorates, and he tries different locations, searching for his place. On the way he meets other lovely decorations and learns to appreciate things that are not perfect - including him! The book comes with a copy of a song written just for this story by Carol Nicodemi.
