It snowed without stopping for week after week.
When it ended at last, Cami Lou took a peek.
She bundled and booted and zipped up her brother.
"Let's build a huge snowman unlike any other!"

Cami Lou and her brother have built the biggest
snowman the world has ever seen.


But his size creates an uproar in town,
and a judge rules that he's got to go.

Can Cami Lou think big again and save

Have fun discovering the answer as you read
my tall tale and enjoy Amanda Haley's
adorable and energetic illustrations.

School Library Journal says:

Lawler opens with this Dr. Seuss-like stanza:
“It snowed without stopping/for week after week./When it ended at last,/Cami Lou took a peek.
... Haley's offbeat, busy, and chaotically colorful cartoon-style illustrations are a lively complement to the bouncy text.

Margo Dill, educator, blogger, and author, says:

When someone can rhyme and
tell a story as well as Janet Lawler can,
then you don't want to miss her books.
Snowzilla is going to become a legend
just like Frosty...
