What's When It Snows About

Publisher Summary

When everything grinds to a halt because of the snow, one small boy and his teddy bear refuse to allow the weather to spoil their fun. They embark on an amazing journey in which they ride a polar bear and meet huge snowmen, an ice queen, fairies, elves, a giant reindeer and Father Christmas. And at the very end of the story, in a wonderfully cosy and festive fireside scene, there’s a clever twist - he has simply become immersed in the magical scenes of his favourite book.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.25 / 7.0

I REALLY wanted to love this book because Lionheart (also written and illustrated by Richard Collingridge) is one of our family’s absolute favorites. The illustrations are truly gorgeous and add depth to the sparse text, but unfortunately the story just doesn’t make it all the way their for me, and despite being a HUGE proponent of reading the abrupt “because my favorite book takes me there” seems forced and moralizing set against the spreads of imagination we’ve just witnessed.

Who Wrote When It Snows

Richard Collingridge

At about the age of five Richard noticed that real people didn’t look like a bunch of sticks with a circle on the top. But to his amazement, no one else in his classroom, including the teachers, seemed to be able to see this. So with this secret in mind, he decided that when he grew up, he wanted to draw pictures for a living. Richard moved to Paris after graduating with a BA Hons degree in 2008. His debut picture book When it Snows was shortlisted for the V&A Best Illustrated Book Award and nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal. His follow up picture book Lionheart and his illustrations for Blackberry Blue were shortlisted for the UKLA Book Award and also nominated for the Kate Greenaway.
