About This Book
Who needs words to tell a story? In Raymond Briggs's charming tale, told with
175 softly hued, artfully composed frames, a little boy makes friends with a
snowman. He wakes up on a snowy day, tells his mother he's going outside, then
begins a flurry of snowman-building. That night, he can't sleep, so he opens the
front door and lo! the snowman has come to life. The amiable yet frosty fellow
enjoys his tour of the boy's cozy home; he admires the cat, but is disturbed by
the fire. The boy shows him other wonders--the TV and a lamp and running water.
Predictably perhaps, he is disturbed by the stove, but likes ice cubes quite a
bit. Soon it is the snowman's turn to introduce the boy to his wintry world.
They join hands, rise up into the blizzardy air--presumably over Russia and into
the Middle East--and then safely back to home sweet home. The boy pops into bed
before his parents get up... but when he wakes up the next morning he races
outside only to find his new buddy's melted remains, scattered with a few
forlorn lumps of coal. Since the book is wordless, you can make up any ending
you want... like "Then, in a puff of pink smoke, the snowman recomposed himself
and went to live in the boy's garage freezer." Or you could just resign yourself
to a peaceful "And that was that." Raymond Briggs's The Snowman won the Boston
Globe-Horn Book Award, and this wintertime classic continues to win the hearts
of kids every year. --Karin Snelson
