A brand-new edition of the classic story, The Snowman.

One winter's day a boy builds a Snowman. That night, the Snowman comes to life! Together they go on a breathtaking and magical journey, until the sun comes up and it's time to go home...

Raymond Briggs's classic tale was turned into an animation that has delighted generations of children. This new edition of the story features artwork from the film accompanied by words, and an audio CD of a wonderful narration by Matthew Macfadyen.

Be sure to look out for the brilliant The Snowman and the Snowdog, too!

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 FirthOn 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 blogJust 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 blogWhat 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 NewsThe 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 MagazineMichael 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 GroupIf anyone was going to give words to this classic, it had to be Morpurgo. A perfect book, perfect story, perfectly told.—Angels & Urchins
