How fond of snowmen are you? Do you have fond memories of playing in the snow, throwing snowballs, and making snowmen?
Warning: Once you read this short story, you might not like snowmen so much. You might never want to see one again. It is possible that you could develop a phobia of snowmen.
This is truly a story for the snowy days of winter. Where I live, that is usually during the month of February.
Agnete is not having a very good day. The teachers at her daughter’s school are on strike, and that means that Emma, her six-year-old daughter, must stay home with her. Since Agnete is not a very patient or loving mom, that makes her day a living hell. It probably doesn’t do much for Emma either. A bunch of ladies—rich, snotty ladies—are coming over for lunch, and Emma will only be in the way.
Emma’s salvation comes when it starts to snow because she loves to play in the snow. It takes a bit to talk her mom into letting her, but finally, she gets to run out and play in the glorious snow. She makes snow angel after snow angel. Then she finds a snowman out there with her. She didn’t build it, and no one was around who could have made it. Where did it come from?
Little Emma is the first one to witness just what a monster this snowman is. No one believes her though. Later on, others really wish they had listened to what they had thought was something she made up. But, let’s face it. If your child came to you and told you that a snowman was alive, would you believe it?
The questions of where this snowman came from and why he can do the things he does are never answered, but that makes no difference to me. That is left up to the mind of the reader, and some of us have pretty vivid imaginations. 🙂
I received a free copy of this book without being expected to review it. This is the perfect read to curl up with on a snowy day. If you would like your own copy of Nibble, Nibble, Crunch, I’ve provided an Amazon link for it below.

It was a constant reminder that she wasn’t a perfect mother. . .that she had somehow failed.
Were the gods done mocking her?
There were too many nice men out there to settle for just one.
Paralyzed, she watched as the blackness spread into the policeman’s eyes and shut them down one by one.
