Super Paua Stories

The Snowman by Cathal McCabe

June 25, 2021

Kamil and Julia wake to an overnight snowfall. They can't wait to go outside to build a snowman. Thus begins the short life of The Snowman who, 'born' in December, 'lives' only until the new year... but a life full of incident, observation, emotion and poetry. Based on the author's poem 'The Snowman' from his collection this is a story for children and their parents.
