In her first magical adventure beyond the gates of Jubilee Park, Pearlie takes a trip to snowy New York City. It's f-f-freezing and Crystal the Central Park Fairy is nowhere to be found! Can Pearlie find a warm and cosy place to stay? In this enchanting wintery tale Pearlie meets Chester the squirrel, hunts for walnuts in the snow and brings a welcome sprinkle of fairy dust to the icy fountain on Cherry Hill.
