SynopsisWhen Rupert and Kate tell their parents they're going to make a snowman, both Mum and Dad correct them, "You mean a snowperson." Originally published over 30 years ago, this is a deceptively simple story that overthrows gender stereotypes in a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek way that only David McKee could accomplish.
