Story: "Isn't it amazing that the entire world can change without making a sound! this little bunny and Woodspirit were tucked up into their beds and fast asleep when the snow started to fall late last night. But fall it did - steadily and silently, until the hole forest was magically transformed into a white, fluffy, frosty playground. They awoke to hear their three favorite words: "No school today!" In no time at all these kindered spirits were pulling the sled to the top of a knuckle clenching, gut-wrenching monster of a hill. Well it's actually just the bunny slope, the beginner's hill. Tom Clark and Timothy Wolfe decorated the front of their sled with "1997" for, like their friends from "Cairn Christmas 1996," they are headed for the holidays and the new year. The subway token reads "1 Fare" - their little sled can really hold only one daredevil at a time. But on the next trip down, some bunny's going to have some fun!"
