When Iggy and Martina go to bed everything is the same as usual. But in the night comes the snow and the world is transformed. First they make a snowman, though he looks more like a snowbear; anyway, ‘he looks happy to be made’ says Martina, and it’s true. When the two children sledge down the hill – against their mum’s instructions – they run into real danger, until the snowbear arrives to save them. Iggy, Martina and the snowbear are hugely appealing characters and this funny, exciting picture book has a real sense of magic. It’s beautiful to look at and will stand repeated reading. ~ Andrea Reece
Snow comes in the night, and Iggy and Martina make a snowbear. But then a sledge ride takes them deep into the woods. How will they get back home again? The Snowbear is a spellbinding story about the magic of snow and the power of a child's imagination. With a simple text and beautiful illlustrations, it will be read again and again. Themes of friendship, loyalty, and bravery make it a great choice for story time, as a bedtime read or on car trips. Children will love the crisp, wintry setting brought to life by Claire Alexander's art.
