Jack is building a model airplane but then he hears his sister Nancy coming up the stairs.  Nancy is OK but she always want to help.  Like the time she illustrated his homework.  Or the time she gave his tuba a bath.  Sure she means well but she has a way of creating disasters when she helps.  So Jack hides his model and they set off for the snowman building contest in the park.  Because Jack is on a team already, Nancy is stuck building her own snowman.  And it isn't going so well.  But then things get worse when a couple of bullies start making fun of her and her snowman.  Will Jack leave his friends to help his little sister?
