This funny story has charming ink-and-watercolor paintings and endearing characters.

One snowy day, Pinky is heading to town to get a pizza for himself and his mother. He must run quickly so he doesn't forget: mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes, onions and peas.

When the Squirrel boys try to sidetrack him, Pinky becomes annoyed and kicks the tree they're in. The snow from the branches falls down, and Pinky, not knowing it, looks like a snowman.

As Pinky walks through town, everyone is talking about the walking snowman. But Pinky doesn't see him AND he's much too focused on getting his pizza to stop and look for him.
