This book is broken up into three titled sections. In this book, when Henry sees a poster advertising a snowman contest, he gets really excited and runs home to tell his dad. His dad is in the midst of painting a chair but ends up with more paint on him than on the chair. The day of the contest Henry and his dad already have their snowman plan ready. When the judging begins there are all kinds of snow sculptures including snow aliens and a snow Abraham Lincoln. Henry and his dad are happy with the way things turn out and their prizes. This book is actually #19 in the series. Luckily, I don't think the books have to be read in any special order to understand them. Henry and Mudge is a good beginning chapter series, with short chapters.
