When winter is forecasted to come early this year, George and Allie worry that their upcoming fall camping trip may be canceled. So they try to stall winter's arrival by reattaching leaves to the trees to fool the seasons into not changing. When snow falls anyway, George and Allie are devastated -- their trip is ruined! But The Man with the Yellow Hat takes them camping in the snowy forest anyway and they see many new amazing sights, including a deer, rabbit, fox and giant mystery footprints made by ... an abominable snowman?! When George makes a trail for the snowman to find their campsite, the trio is in for a big snowy surprise indeed. / Excited for his first trip to the Botanical Gardens, George tries to grow fruits and vegetables in his bedroom. The Man with the Yellow Hat explains that where George is going is not that kind of garden, it's where exotic flowers and unusual plants grow! When George arrives, what he sees is beyond his wildest expectations -- a plant that looks like brains, flowers that smell like lemons and .... big green giraffes and lions!? The Topiary Garden, where big leafy bushes are shaped into animals, inspires George to spruce up his home shrubbery and make his own. But which shapes should George create? And will Jumpy stand still long enough for George to trim a squirrel-shaped bush? When George's creatures end up in unexpected shapes, he and Mrs. Renkins brainstorm a solution to make George's Topiary Garden come to life.
