‘Snowball,’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.

The dream team of children’s picture books are back with a suitably wintery Christmas book, ‘Snowball.’ Book Boy Jr. had been desperate to read this since spotting an advert for it at the train station!


A lonely little snowball stands on top of a mountain and gazed down at the town below. It seems to him, that the town might be just to place to find some new friends, so off he sets.

Unfortunately, Snowball takes a tumble, and you know what happens when a Snowball starts to roll…. through washing, through restaurants and even the zoo!


I read this with Book Boy Jr at bedtime and he loved it.  He thought it was hilarious that Snowball kept rolling down the hill with more and more ridiculous things getting stuck on him.  The page which for the biggest laugh, however, was when Snowball has rolled through the zoo and had a tiger with a rather musical bottom poking out of the side – take a good look at the illustration and you’ll understand the hilarity!

Another winner from Sue and Paul, with a lovely message about finding friends.  Make sure you listen to the dynamic duo chatting Snowball and Supertato on the special Christmas Library Girl and Book Boy podcast! (remember to subscribe so you don’t miss out on future episodes.)
