Adam was asked to be one of the many kid lit illustrators to contribute a hand-decorated snowflake ornament to the 2006 Robert's Snow Auction. The auction raised $100,120.91 this year for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/The Jimmy Fund. Visit Robert's Snow to see all the snowflakes. Adam's appears below, with the text that he wrote on the back: Rusty, the Snowbot/ Has a wheel so he can roll/ With an exhaust pipe and a dynamo/ That relies on burning coal.
Rusty the Snowbot/ Was alive as you can be/ When a frame of tin/ holds your insides in/ And your parts start with a key.
There Must have been some gadgets in that old milk vat they found/ For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around!
Bumpity bump bump, bumpity bump bump/ Look at Rusty roll/ Bumpity bump bump, bumpity, bump bump/ 'Till he runs out of coal!
