Waterstones Says

The ultimate classic Christmas picture book. Icy mountains, midnight blue; Christmas just isn’t Christmas unless you go walking in the air.

Spend Christmas with everyone's favourite Snowman! This special edition comes with a sparkly glitter cover, and introduction by Raymond Briggs.

One winter's night, a snowman comes to life and an unforgettable adventure begins.

It's not Christmas without The Snowman

After a heavy snowfall, a young boy spends a winter's day making his very own Snowman. Little does he know, when he goes to bed that evening something magical will happen...

The Snowman comes to life!

Told entirely through pictures, the boy and the Snowman go on the most extraordinary adventure, flying through the skies on the peaceful winter night.

The beautiful illustrations bring the classic Christmas tale to life, making it and the film it inspired, a Christmas tradition for generations of children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In Raymond Briggs' story, a boy's dream comes true. Somehow, Michael Morpurgo makes Briggs' story come true. It's a delightful magic track. It has all the wonder of reading the Snowman for the first time.-Colin Firth

On seeing the cover for the very first time I felt just as James might have felt as he glanced out of the window at The Snowman for the first time. The magic of The Snowman never truly melts and in this adaptation Michael Morpurgo and Robin Shaw have faithfully honoured the spirit of the original story whilst adding a new magical lustre to appeal to a whole new, very lucky generation.-Emma O'Donovan, The Book Sniffer blog

Just wonderful! Loyal to the first story with fresh elements that flesh it out for older readers. A timeless tale, freshly made but with the same magic at its heart - just like a real snowman. It's rare that a remake is ever as good as the original but in this case, great care has been given to ensure it is both complementary and a tribute to the book that means so much to lots of people.-Alex Lloyd, Books with Baby blog

What a magical book! The Snowman is such a lovely read (for young and old alike) and has already made me excited for Christmas. It's truly heartwarming.-Hannah Timson, First News

The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo not only brings a much-loved tale to a new audience, it brings with it an extra layer of festive magic. We predict this book will fast become as much a part of every family Christmas as snuggling down with a hot chocolate to catch the classic animation on TV.-JUNIOR Magazine

Michael Morpurgo plays homage to the classic tale of The Snowman, bringing James, his family and snowy friend beautifully to life through his words, in a story to melt your heart. All the classic elements of the original story are here, in a book which will surely be at the heart of a magical Christmas for many families, to read alongside the picture book and the film.-Jayne Gould, Ipswich Children's Book Group

If anyone was going to give words to this classic, it had to be Morpurgo. A perfect book, perfect story, perfectly told.-Angels & Urchins

“My Daughter Loved It”

If you have children, this is a beautiful book to introduce them too. I loved the film when I was little and my daughter now loves the book. Lovely to reminisce over.
