A snowy day, a deserted school and the teacher you least want to see. Welcome to Snow Day, the most magical day of the year . . .

When Danny goes to school one quiet, snowy morning, the last thing he expects to find is a deserted school and his least favourite teacher. But that's exactly what he does find. And what starts as the worst day imaginable, ends as the most life-affirming and magical day of the year.

An incredibly moving story about finding friendship in the most unexpected of places.
