With a heavy snowfall blanketing the town of Mitford, its residents decide to have an impromptu snowman building contest. Following the characters from Karon’s popular series, The Mitford Snowmen is a cute short story. This small hardcover book features colourful artwork as well.

I came across this little book while searching through the shelves at my local library. I was looking for shorter books to read during a read-a-thon and The Mitford Snowmen was a perfect addition to my pile. It also fit in with the current winter season.

Jan Karon’s Mitford series has been on my TBR list for some time now and this was a wonderful introduction to the characters and the setting. It also gave me an idea of the authors writing style.

Although its characters are from an adult series, this story would be appropriate for adults and children alike. Associated with Hallmark, there are even Mitford themed d├ęcor which along with this book would make a wonderful gift.
