ahead of the seasonal curve...great storybook review
The Snowman's Revenge
Revenge is the mission on Mr. Snowman’s mind. He is jealous and angry because he was left outside in the cold while his creators are inside enjoying warmth and hot chocolate. He plots a scheme to enter the house and after some unfortunate events decides to climb the stairs that night and really give those children a scare. His negative emotions cause him literally to have a melt down. Fear not though, your children will be able to sleep comfortably at night knowing that they did the best thing for Mr. Snowman by leaving him outside in the cold all bundled up in his scarf, hat and jacket.. I don’t want to “leak” too much of the plot, I will leave that to Mr. Snowman. Mr. Snowman, however learned a valuable life lesson…there’ s snow place like home.
p.s. the illustrations are brilliant...colourful, expressions exquisite, and done by a Canadian. You can't get any better than that. Fabulous work Mike Motz.
