In the dead of winter, three ravens perch on the gnarly branch of an old tree. Two of the ravens complain bitterly, grumbling and squawking about the cold and snow. But the third raven doesn't say a word. As he watches the children frolicking in the snow, flopping on the ground and filling the field with fresh snow angels, he longs to join in the fun. The plucky little raven spends a tireless night, wiggling and hopping, trying to make a snow angel of his own. His comic efforts, his cheerful outlook, and his perseverance-and the surprising reward they bring-will warm young readers' hearts, even on the coldest winter night.
