A boy makes a snowball and is about to throw it when he hears "Stop! . . . Let's do something else." So the boy and the snowball make a snow angel, build a snow fort, and make a snowman instead. The boy decides to take the snowball home. When the snowball starts to melt, the boy rescues it by putting it in the freezer, where the snowball meets some very nice frozen foods and a tray of ice cubes too. The snowball meets flowers and butterflies in spring, sea and sand in summer, and apples and colorful leaves in fall.

Elliot Kreloff is a best-selling illustrator of picture books, easy readers and board books, some of which he also wrote. A desire to illustrate the same scene in different seasons sparked the idea for The Luckiest Snowball, his first book for Holiday House. The father of a grown daughter, Elliot lives in New York City.
