    ☆☆☆☆☆

    On a wintry day, a little lone mole befriends a snowball.  Little Mole is new to the neighborhood and doesnt have any friends

    he wanted to take him on the bus but no one would let the snowball on the bus, so mole rolled him into a bear but the snowball as a bear wasnt allowed on the bus either.  Next he had an idea to make the snowball into a little boy and even gave him his hat. This time it worked but being on the warm bus made the snowball melt and the mole was so sad he didnt get to say goodbye to his snowball friend, what happens next will make you smile for sure.
