it was amazing
bookshelves: wordless, raymond-briggs, weston-woods
Read in December, 1991

“The Snowman” is a cute story from the mind of Raymond Briggs and has been the most memorable classic book to ever grace upon the world of children’s books. This book is about how a young boy starts building a snowman and realizes that the snowman is magical and the true friendship he finds in the snowman. “The Snowman” is a true classic that everyone will love for many years!

Raymond Briggs’ story about a boy and his snowman is told through his beautiful illustrations as this is one of the few books where there are no words narrating the story. Instead, the illustrations tell the story and Raymond Briggs’ illustrations are beautiful as they are set up as sort of a comic book style setting and flow extremely smoothly together to create one beautiful story. The images that stood out the most in this book were the images of the snowman and the boy soaring through the air and looking at the various places around the world while they are flying in the air.

“The Snowman” is truly Raymond Briggs’ most memorable classic and many children will be entranced by the beautiful illustrations for the many years that they read this book. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is no inappropriate content in this book, but children might want to watch out for the ending if they cannot handle unhappy endings.
