The Snowman

Author: Raymond Briggs
Illustrator: Raymond Briggs
Publisher: Puffin

The classic wordless book about a boy who makes a snowman which comes to life at night. Their adventure together culminates in a flight through a snow-filled sky. The film and its accompanying music can be regarded as an enhancement of the original book, but avoid later versions of the story where a text has been added - the wordless book provides plenty of inspiration for children to add their own words.
