This story is The Snow Man from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang
The story is of a Snow Man. This Snow Man is unique because he wants to get close to the stove. His only desire is to get close to the stove to be happy. The dog thinks this is silly and tells him so. Eventually, winter goes away and the Snow Man melts and the dog discovers that there was a broom inside him that made the Snow man long for the stove. Possibly the moral is that we cant change what is inside of us even if it isn’t good for us? Who knows?
