Product description

We have selected Snowball as our Book of the Month for November – the perfect book to celebrate wintertime and get young children joining in. This funny rhyming read-aloud has a snowy seasonal theme, and comes from the award-winning team of Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, who created Supertato and Barry the Fish with Fingers. Sue and Paul’s books have become increasingly established in recent years, and they’re an ideal choice for children who like Julia Donaldson’s rhyming stories and are looking for something new to try. Children will absolutely love Sue’s vibrant, bold artwork and the wacky humour and imagination that lights up every page of the book. As well as being incredibly child-friendly, Snowball is great for talking about themes of friendship and making mistakes. See our book talk notes for some fun-filled ideas on using Snowball for discussion and joining-in games in the classroom or at home.

We all love to throw a snowball! But what’s it like to be a snowball? Hmm: I bet you’ve never even thought of that! Well, grab your woolly hat and gloves, because Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet are telling a weird and wonderful story that brings a snowball to life. (Oh snow many giggles!) The snowball is kind of lonely, stuck at the top of a mountain. So he decides to visit the local town for a bit of fun. But on his way he trips, falls and starts to roll. What do you think will happen now? There’s snow and more snow, a line of washing, a bear on a bike and a confused sheep. Soon, the story is snowballing totally out of control!

  • The latest zany rhyme from this exuberant dream team
  • By the creators of Supertato and Gordon’s Great Escape
  • Brilliantly bold artwork paired with witty rhyming text
  • The perfect festive treat for kids who love to laugh lots
