Synopsis

When a blizzard blows into town on Billy’s tenth birthday, he is convinced his day is ruined. But as the winds begin picking up and the snow falls heavier, things don’t turn out as he expected. Billy’s house is the nearest one to school, and it looks as though he will be having a few after-school guests for a slumber party bigger than any celebration he could have planned!
