The Snowman by Raymond Briggs
The Snowman

crmeeson, February 17, 2007

Wonderful, wonderful story told by gorgeous pictures - I can remember when it was first released, and was completely enthralled then, and am still now.
If anyone wanted to introduce a Christmas story to their children, then this is it. Tell your own story as the book evolves - imagine your own story unfolding as each page turns - I did.
And that haunting theme "When Walking In The Air" sung by Aled Jones in the short film just sets the whole movie off beautifully.
A truely wonderful story.
