Paul is a snowman, but he’s a very special snowman. His best friend is Dan, the little boy that made him one snowy winter’s day. Dan didn’t want to build a snowman that day. His friend next door, Bill, thought it was silly to build a snowman and he laughed at Dan when he caught him building one. Dan was about to give up, but Paul, whose head was only a ball of snow on the ground with a carrot for his nose and stones and sticks for eyes and ears, called Dan back. The snowman, Paul, didn’t like the idea of being incomplete, being headless. So Dan finished the snowman and Paul came to life. This was only the beginning of snowman Paul’s adventures. He developed a passion for music and learned to play several instruments; he decided he wanted to win a gold medal at the winter Olympics and proved himself worthy; and he became Dan’s hero, helping rescue the day for Dan’s sister’s birthday, after Dan had helped himself to the birthday cake the day before.
Yossi Lapid’s collection of four picture books, "The Snowman Paul Series, which includes “My Snowman Paul”, “Snowman Paul at the Concert Hall”, “Snowman Paul Saves Kate's Birthday”, and “Snowman Paul at the Winter Olympics” are delightful little fantasy stories told in rhyming verse. The illustrations are spectacular and certainly help carry along each story. Filled with a little touch of humor, each story also teaches young readers important lessons: don’t let others dictate your pleasures; work hard to achieve success in music, in sports or in anything else; don’t take what isn’t yours and then try to hide your error; stand up for what you believe in; and don’t cheat. This is a great, charming collection of stories for young children. A real treasure.
