Who's ever heard of a snowstorm in the summer?

Zoomer, that's who! It's a hot summer day and Zoomer is all ready to cool off with a snow cone. But when the snow cone–making goes too far, the hot summer day turns icy cold! Luckily Zoomer knows just how to make the best of the situation: He goes on a snow safari, visits the polar empire of Zoomarctica, rides his snow locomotive—and that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Once again, Ned Young paints Zoomer's world with fun and rich illustrations that turn the silly into the spectacular. Both kids and their parents will laugh out loud at the comical antics and cuddle up together for the warm and cozy ending.

Although the ending has the feel of a non sequitur (Zoomer gets hungry, cleans up the snow, and convinces his mother to make chili), readers will delight in the quirky juxtaposition of the dog's implausibly masterful ice sculptures with emerald grass and an azure sky.
