The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo is a classic re-telling of Raymond Briggs timeless book.
Michael Morpurgo has perfectly captured the magical atmosphere of The Snowman as he gives a voice to the original. Michael Morpurgo has put into words what my imagination has uttered over the years. He has taken a familiar tale and added some extra special touches.
The whole thing is beautifully illustrated by Robin Shaw who produces scenes you just want to step into, as he expands on the original.
Whether you are eight or eighty The Snowman is a tale you are going to enjoy and want to re-visit every year.
