- “I do like that! I can make it look like me, if it wears my old top-hat!”
- ―the Fat Controller
The Snow Controller is a short rhyming magazine story.
Stephen and Bridget are playing in the snowy station yard, digging the snow with the stationmaster's spade. Bridget asks the stationmaster for a carrot and some lumps of coal she needs to complete their snowman. The Fat Controller wanders across to inspect the snowman and makes it look like him with his old top-hat.
