It’s another snow day for Alice and her family, but Alice will make sure it is not boring! With a tired Dad tagging along, Alice declares herself king and orders Dad to write a book. Creatively, Alice patterns her wild chapters after the day they have together at home—a royal knights' tea party with Mom and the baby, dinner time with pirates, and a toy unicorn stampede. King Alice illustrates Dad's pages, taking several breaks to watch TV and—yikes—have a timeout. Thankfully, it is soon time for a bath, and Alice enjoys reading their homemade book for a bedtime story as she dreams about what they'll write in the sequel tomorrow.
