The Snowman and The Snowdog audio eBook is based on the much-anticipated sequel to the classic Christmas film, The Snowman. This enchanting audio ebook reunites readers with the Snowman and introduces them to a new best friend, the Snowdog. Read by Benedict Cumberbatch, star of The Hobbit and the TV series Sherlock, this audio eBook is illustrated with beautiful images from the film which bring this magical story to life.
The Snowman and The Snowdog will be shown on television on Channel Four for the very first time this Christmas to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the original Snowman film, based on Raymond Briggs's iconic children's picture book.
Fans of Raymond Briggs's classic wordless picture book The Snowman (1978) and the subsequent animated film (1982) can again take flight in that wintry, whimsical world via this print adaptation of an author-sanctioned animated short film that was produced in 2012. The action picks up many years after the initial snowman came to life and soared with his young companion through the night sky: a boy named Billy finds an old photograph of the original snowman, as well as a box containing his signature hat and scarf. Billy crafts a new snowman, along with a small snow dog who takes him on his own magical adventure, which includes a ski race, an encounter with Santa, and the granting of Billy's wish for a real dog. The soft edges and loose lines of the illustrations pay homage to Briggs's original artwork. Ages 3 7.
