I remember that winter because it had brought the heaviest snow that I had ever seen. Snow had fallen steadily all night long. And in the morning, I woke in a room filled with light and silence. The whole world seemed to be held in a dream-like stillness. It was a magical day...
...and it was on that day I made the snowman.

Come Walking In The Air With This Christmas Fantasy
THE SNOWMAN built by a lonely young boy comes to life at Midnight on Christmas Eve, propelling them both on a fanciful, unforgettable adventure...
Raymond Briggs' charming picture book comes to life in this delightful British cartoon. Here is a perfect excursion into realms of Imagination & Wonder. The Snowman's guided tour of the human child's home is a comic treat. Their flight over the frozen North Country & Polar Seas is exhilarating and full of white mystery.
The serious themes of friendship's responsibility, and the inevitability of ultimate loss, are also hinted at. The ending is both beautiful & heartbreaking.
