Summary

Summary

A new Christmas classic based on Raymond Briggs's holiday favorite The Snowman.

In this holiday picture book, a companion to Raymond Briggs's The Snowman, a little boy builds a snow puppy next to his snowman--in hopes of getting a real puppy for Christmas. That night the Snowman comes to life and takes the boy and the Snowdog on an adventure to the world of Snow People. But the best is yet to come on Christmas morning, when a real, live puppy is waiting under the tree.

Based on the original classic by Raymond Briggs, which has sold over 8.5 million copies and is available in fifteen languages, the story and illustrations are by the creators of the animated special by the same name.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Fans of Raymond Briggs's classic wordless picture book The Snowman (1978) and the subsequent animated film (1982) can again take flight in that wintry, whimsical world via this print adaptation of an author-sanctioned animated short film that was produced in 2012. The action picks up many years after the initial snowman came to life and soared with his young companion through the night sky: a boy named Billy finds an old photograph of the original snowman, as well as a box containing his signature hat and scarf. Billy crafts a new snowman, along with a small snow dog who takes him on his own magical adventure, which includes a ski race, an encounter with Santa, and the granting of Billy's wish for a real dog. The soft edges and loose lines of the illustrations pay homage to Briggs's original artwork. Ages 3-7. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
