She volunteers to journey to Father Frost's palace and ask him for help with the Winter Witch who is keeping spring from returning. On the way, she meets the Winter Whirlwinds and their sisters, the Blizzards who do their best to try to stop her. Finally, the Winter Witch intervenes by singing a magical lullaby to the little girl lulling her to sleep in the deep snow. Luckily, she is rescued at the last minute by the woodland animals and together they continue their adventure to see Father Frost. Does Father Frost help them and make spring return? Filled with drama, a bit of comedy, warmth and kindness The Little Girl and the Winter Whirlwinds is a delightful story.
