A book for Christmas: The Sikh Snowman

Published in Fiction

Some snowmen had topknots. Some wore football scarves and skull caps. Some had veils over their faces. One had fairy wings. They all began to sing......

Snowfall, friendship and feelings combine in this heartfelt and celebratory story about coming together. There's a relatable and joyous sense of wonder as the snow starts and as the friends pull together to build their snowman. Filled with heart, hope and humanity, it is easy to imagine The Sikh Snowman becoming a firm favourite. - Jake Hope, Youth Libraries Group

The Sikh Snowman, by Owen Gallagher with artwork by Fiona Stewart, ISBN 978-1-912710-29-4. Price: £9 plus £3 p. and p.

Peephole

When a Conservative candidate calls
Ruth wears a blue rosette.

When a Labour candidate knocks
she reaches for red.

If there’s a rapid rap she freezes
at the thought

of her grandparents rising as smoke
from a chimney.
