Snobbity Snowman by Maria Bardyukova & Quiet Riley

I have received a free e-copy of the book Snobbity Snowman by Maria Bardyukova & Quiet Riley for son2 to review. You may find out more about the authors Maria and Quiet on their blogs.

Here is the book blurb.

Snobbity Snowman has everything a snowman could possibly want: a shiny hat, freshly-picked noses and enough pride to last a lifetime. In fact, he is so egocentric that he can’t even see when his life starts falling apart.

What disasters must take place to open his charcoal eyes? To help him see that pride and possessions cannot bring true happiness? Will he defrost his chilly ego and embrace the warmth of friendship? Only Snobbity can tell. 

Depicting winter in rich and whimsical tones, Snobbity Snowman’s quirky characters and unexpected twists promise to leave a lasting impression on all its snobbulous readers.

A lovely seasonal picture book for this time of year with a message to impart. This book is suitable either as an early reader or to read out loud to very young children, although some of the words like “monocle” may need some explaining by the parent. The illustrations are bright and vibrant. And it has some fun puzzles at the back of the book, although son2 was disappointed that when he pressed the “click here” on each puzzle, that he was redirected to a page that could not be found on Maria’s blog.

I feel it is important that the latter issue is addressed, as children will naturally feel let down when any interactive features don’t work as expected. Hopefully this has already been spotted and resolved.

Snobbity Snowman is available on Amazon, currently priced at £4.61 in kindle format. Amazon suggests an age range of 2-12, but I would say it better suits upto age 7.

My boys are in the 8-12 age group. They both read and enjoyed the book but it was clearly too young for them.
