Product Description

Review

"The illustration on the front cover speaks volumes - this is a quite special book, the illustrations are out of this world - a simple, carefully told tale that will captivate just about everyone that comes across it. It will become a firm Christmas favourite in schools, in libraries, and in children's book collections. Magnificent." (Books Monthly)

"Unabashedly escapist . . . This is a romantic walkabout of a book, a dream that takes us with it. ... A boosting vote of confidence in the power of fantasy." (Kate Kellaway The Observer)

"A beautiful, atmospheric picture book which is absolutely delightful for younger listeners. Evoking a magical, imaginative world Richard Collingridge’s creation is just perfect to snuggle up with at the end of the day. When It Snows is a book to savour and linger over as you soak up the delicious atmosphere Collingridge has so masterfully created." (MyBookCorner.com.au)

"A wide-eyed and woolly-hatted young boy and his teddy explore a mysterious, snowy landscape of the imagination that ultimately proves much more captivating and exciting than the gifts waiting for them underneath the tree." (Teach Nursery)

Book Description

Lovely illustrations, nice story easy for the Children to follow and a great twist at the end to keep them thinking! I'm slightly biased as Richard is my son, but I'm also his biggest critic! Can't fault this in any way!When It Snows

I don't normally review children's picture books; I don't have any need, there are no close young children in my family, and I don't really get too much from the stories as they are for toddlers. Books for children a little older can be really good, but picture books have never really appealed to me. Until I saw When It Snows.

At 30 pages - including the title pages and the very last page, as they are also illustrated - When It Snows is very short book, with very few words on the pages. The story is very simple, but really sweet. What I love most about this book - and what had me wanting to read it in the first place - are the illustrations. The paintings. They are absolutely beautiful! The attention to detail, the light and shade and the undeniable talent of Collingridge... it's just breath taking. These paintings are something I would love to have hanging on my wall, they're just gorgeous! And you can see the texture of the canvas in the paintings too, which I think is just awesome. Use Amazon's "Look Inside" feature to get an idea of just how beautiful the illustrations are. Go ahead, I'll wait.

As I said, the story is really sweet, too. As well as being very Christmassy, in a very simple way, it gets to the very heart of what reading can do; take you and your imagination off on a magical adventure (or rephrase depending on the genre you're reading). It's a book about reading, and as such, it's a great book to encourage children to read more, as it's saying, "This is the wonder of books, they can take you away again and again".

A simply beautiful, magical picture book. Every child should have one, even if it's just so their parents can enjoy the treasure that it is.

A wonderfully wintery read, filled with gorgeous illustrations.

Provoked lots of conversation with my youngsters about the snow, winter time, Santa, and all those other lovely Christmas Time things.

Format: Paperback
An unusual book and definitely a different Christmas story, but I'm not sure what I really feel about it.The pictures are unusual, both in style and content and sometimes I think look quite menacing as they're dark and there are shadows. The story is a little like the snowman in that when it snows a child goes off on an adventure to the place where the snowmen live, meets the Queen of the Poles and the elves, santa and even a reindeer ..... and how does he achieve this - through a book - a good promotion of the power of stories and books. For me it didn't live up to some of the hype I've seen.
