Wonderful Winter is a story about Elton, who enjoys being outside and is unhappy that winter has come. He is sad that he cannot swim, hike, or ride his bike anymore. It seems as though nobody can talk him out of his grumpiness until his next-door neighbor, Penelope, invites him to play in the snow with her. He realizes that snowshoeing, sledding, and building snow people can be just as fun as his favorite summertime activities. Illustrations support the text.
