The Snowman

by Raymond Briggs
24 pages, Picture Book
Reviewed by Bethany

A rivetting little yarn.


On a snowy day in Englad, James decides to build himself a snowman. But, with its tangerine nose and twinkling coal eyes, it turns out that there is something extra special about this snowman, as the adventures of the following day will tell.


All good and sound.

This is a lovely book that is most treasured for its dazzling illustrations - from the beauteous colors of the northern lights to the hilarity of the snowman trying on a variety of noses! Now famous for the 30 minute animation that is featured every Christmas, it is a wonderful read for all children.
