The beloved, award-winning classic The Snowman celebrates its 40th anniversary! One winter's night, a little boy's snowman comes to life—and a magical adventure begins. . . .

Raymond Briggs's The Snowman perfectly illustrates the wonder and innocence of childhood.

On a snowy winter night, a young boy builds a snowman in hopes that it will come to life. When his wish comes true, the boy and his snowman share silly and tender moments--dressing up, sneaking around the house, skateboarding, and much more. Eventually, they soar through the beautiful night sky before saying good night. Briggs's wordless tale relates a story about imagination and friendship, as well as love and loss. This board book edition of The Snowman is a perfect gift for the holidays.
