Synopsis

Postcards from the Snowman and the Snowdog by

Raymond Briggs's classic book The Snowman has captivated generations of children and their parents with its beautiful and delicate pencil illustrations. Transformed into a successful animation, the magical story has become a highlight of Christmas year after year. And now, in a film commissioned to celebrate thirty years of the original animation, the Snowman flies again - along with an adorable puppy friend. Employing many of the same artists, and artistic methods, The Snowman and the Snowdog has been hailed as a touching and beautiful sequel. This beautiful postcard set brings together for the first time the incredible illustrations from Raymond's original book with stunning artwork from the new film.
