Wordless Books

The Snowman

Raymond Briggs

This is perhaps the most widely known wordless picturebook, which has subsequently been made into both an animated film and a ballet.

In comic-book panels, it tells the touching story of a snowman that comes alive and learns about the world with his creator, a young boy.

From small domestic discoveries such as a squirting washing-up bottle to a breathtaking flight across the world, the pair share an unforgettable midnight adventure that delights them both.
