The Snowman by Raymond Briggs
The Snowman is a magical wordless story perfect for any age, with a sparkly glitter cover and introduction by Raymond Briggs.
One winter’s night, a snowman comes to life and an unforgettable adventure begins. Raymond Briggs’ favourite classic is a true piece of Christmas magic – narrated entirely through pictures, it captures the wonder and innocence of childhood and is now recognised throughout the world.
In 2012 the 30th anniversary of The Snowman was celebrated with a brand new half-hour animation The Snowman and the Snowdog. It introduced a new adorable character, can you guess who? That’s right, a lovable snow puppy!
Our two become engrossed in James building a snowman in his garden, when he wakes up in the night to find that he has come to life. He shows the Snowman his house and in return, he is taken on a magical journey.
This classic is a marvellous Christmas book.
