It's snowing and Muckeen is looking forward to lots of fun! But - Oh! - trapped in his shed, he is not happy at all.
Then Mr and Mrs Farmer dug their way to his shed, bringing with them a duvet! And they have a plan to help keep Muckeen and all the other animals warm and comfy!
It's snowing and Muckeen is looking forward to lots of fun! But - Oh! - where is his dinner? And the water has frozen. What will poor Muckeen do? Trapped in his shed, he is not happy at all.
Then he hears a sound: Scrape! Scrape! What can it be? It's Mr and Mrs Farmer. They've dug their way to his shed. But they don't have a food bucket with them. No, instead they're carrying a duvet!
They wrap Muckeen in the duvet and take him back to the house. Muckeen gets a huge surprise: as well as the cat and dog, there in the house are all the other animals of the farm - the sheep, the horse, the cows, and the chickens and ducks! They're all lovely and warm while the storm beats down outside.
And next day Muckeen has great fun. Mr Farmer finds his old skis and teaches his favourite pig how to ski!

'The cosy warmth of the rescue and the feeling of security surrounding the animals will certainly appeal to young readers, making this a wonderful bedtime story for all children.'
'Perfect for young readers (5+)'
