The Snowman

Raymond Briggs

About the book

It's not Christmas without The Snowman! This extra-special 40th Anniversary edition makes the perfect Christmas gift, complete with a limited edition print, and a letter from Raymond Briggs.

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.

Also available:
The Snowman: The Book of the Classic Film (a picture book with words)
The Snowman and the Snowdog (a picture book with words)
And, for older readers, The Snowman - retold by Michael Morpurgo
