The Snowman™ and the Snowdog
When a young boy and his mother move house, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In it are a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shriveled tangerine: a snowman-making kit!
Later that day it snows and the boy builds a Snowman and, to keep it company, a Snowdog. During the night they both come to life, and the three embark on magical adventures.
