The Snow­man is a story that will melt your heart

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - JELLYBEAN JOURNAL - JBJ RE­PORTER

YOU’LL find a lot of the fun and magic of Christ­mas in The Snow­man, a film based on Ray­mond Briggs’s clas­sic story.

One snowy Christ­mas Eve, a lit­tle boy builds a snow­man. He wakes at mid­night, and is as­ton­ished to see that his snow­man is alive. He slips down­stairs silently and the two, boy and snow­man, play with the Christ­mas tree dec­o­ra­tions, toys, and even Dad’s clothes, be­fore ven­tur­ing out­side to take a thrilling ride through the wood­land on a mo­tor­bike.

Af­ter cool­ing off in the fam­ily’s chest freezer, the Snow­man takes the boy on an ad­ven­ture he will never for­get as they fly through the skies to the North Pole, to the won­der­ful mu­sic We’ re Walk­ing in the Air by Howard Blake.

At the North Pole, the two join other snow­men for a party and meet Fa­ther Christ­mas and his rein­deer.

The ad­ven­ture ends when the lit­tle boy wakes up to find that his friend has melted in the morn­ing sun­shine. Was it all a dream?
