When Madeleine's parents go to the Pond Party, they leave Carl and the baby at home for a cozy winter afternoon with a babysitter. But Carl and Madeleine have plans of their own - they want to play in the snow! After getting all bundled up, they sneak off to go sledding, build a snowman, and even make an appearance at the party and try sliding on the ice at the pond. Of course, resourceful Carl gets the baby home before her parents return - and the babysitter is never the wiser. Everyone's favorite Rottweiler appears here in a wintertime romp.

Table of Contents

“The ageless Rottweiler Carl and toddler Madeleine are up to their usual tricks in a mischievous winter adventure, the 12th book in a series. Thanks to Madeleine's innocently oblivious parents and TV-fixated babysitter, Carl and Madeleine spend an unsupervised day making a snowman, sledding, exploring a frozen pond and liberating a few hot dogs. It's all told through Alexandra Day's lush paintings and just a few words.”USA Today

“A decidedly warm adventure.” —Publishers Weekly

“Day’s signature paintings invite children into a cheerful, bucolic, snowy setting.” —Booklist
