The Snow Womble

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

We first met the Wombles more than 40 years ago, and since then, they’ve appeared in many different formats. Bloomsbury are now re-issuing the original chapter books, as well as revising the stories for a series of picturebooks, all illustrated by Nick Price. The Snow Womble is a story taken from Beresford’s first book, and builds on an equally long tradition of Womble picturebooks for younger readers.

The story incorporates several favourite Womble characters , with Uncle Bulgaria appearing as his characteristically bluff but ultimately kindly self. Price’s illustrations depict the Wombles as they appeared in the animated film series, in clear large, bright spreads which interpret the text well. This winter-themed title will bring these classic characters to a new young audience, and makes a great gift for Christmas.
