    Win a set of plays from our best-selling fiction series, Snow-Man!

    Let me set the scene...

    It's the middle of December, everyone should be in their winter coats and playing in the snow, but something has happened in the town of Shiverton, they are having a heat wave! Snow is melting and running down the hill, but why? How is there a heat wave in December? Who could be responsible?

    It's time for Cole Day to munch on a raw carrot and transform into the world's coldest superhero, Snow-Man.

    This brillllliant play has been skilfully rewritten from the original title to include seven speaking parts with varying amounts of lines so everyone can be included.

    The play consists of only 1000 words but is packed full of humour and superb illustrations by Steve Beckett to keep the attention of the participants. Although it has a reading age of 8-9 and an interest age of 8-12, I promise you boys and girls of all ages will absolutely love it!

    Without even working in children’s books, it is obvious to most which books are timeless favourites as their names continuously crop up. You know exactly which books I’m talking about, don’t you?
