Slush Mountain: Ages 4 +
Slush Mountain is a funny, loving, and irreverent tribute to winter cabin and ski culture, from hot chocolate and snowmen to daredevil show-offs and silly fashion choices. The grand illustrations follow a day in the life of the various quirky creatures who live in a remote mountain village—we witness Bruce “the Spruce” Crampon ski jumping off the roof of Lone Wolf Cabin, the ski patrol dealing with a reckless speed demon on the Goose Bump Glacier mogul run, old “Snow-Blind” Jefferson ice fishing out on Frostbite Fish Pond, and many more. Pull on your long johns and mittens for a jam-packed day on Slush Mountain!
