Book Review: The Snowman by Raymond Briggs

489972Illus. in full color. A wordless story. The pictures have “the hazy softness of air in snow. A little boy rushes out into the wintry day to build a snowman, which comes alive in his dreams that night. The experience is one that neither he nor young ‘readers’ will ever regret or forget.”–(starred) Booklist.

This book is like a comic book with no words. What I like about the format is that you can look at the pictures and talk about the visual story. Beautifully illustrated, I’d like to have this one in my holiday library.

My Grade: B-
