The Book Fairies walk in the air with a re-released Christmas classic…

The Snowman has been given the magical Michael Morpurgo treatment, and book fairies around the UK hid copies in festive locations today!

“Far across the world
The villages go by like trees
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams…”

A special edition of a Christmas classic has been released today – and book fairies have been helping by sharing copies all around the UK!

About the book:

A stunning new gift edition of The Snowman, re-imagined by beloved author Michael Morpurgo for a whole new generation of readers – now with beautiful full-colour illustrations.

One December morning, James is thrilled to wake up to see snow falling.

He spends the whole day making his perfect snowman; he has coal eyes, an old green hat and scarf and a tangerine nose… just like the snowman from his favourite story.

That night, something magical happens – the Snowman comes to life!

He and James take to the skies on a magical adventure where they meet someone very special.

Inspired by the timeless tale, Michael Morpurgo and Robin Shaw have created the perfect story for the whole family to share together as a new Christmas tradition.
