While playing one day, they accidentally wake a hedgehog named Pippa who has been hibernating all winter. Though Pippa is a little foggy at first, Sophie, Hattie, and Owen show her all the fun things to do in wintertime. There’s ice skating on the pond, sledding down snowy hills, snow-animals to build, and so much more! The only problem is now that Pippa’s awake, will she ever be able to get back to sleep?

Sophie rubbed her eyes. She gasped. Is that what I think it is? she wondered excitedly. Her vision cleared. White flakes drifted past her window. Snow! It was snowing! Sophie leaped out of bed. She pressed her nose and whiskers against the frosty window.

At first, Pippa was walking on the ice. But Sophie encouraged her to glide. “Watch Hattie. See how she pushes off with one foot and glides?” Pippa

into her warm, cozy bed. Time for my long winter’s sleep, Sophie thought. But not as long as Pippa’s! Tomorrow’s another snow day! Here’s a peek at the next Adventures of Sophie Mouse book!
