Richard Collingridge - When It Snows - signed hand-sketched 1st/1st ltd
First edition, first impression - in new and unread condition (with just a very light rub to the top right-hand corner of the dj), this copy has been signed and dated by the author/artist who has also added a quote from the book, and hand-sketched the front endpaper with a stunning original sketch. Further, the dustjacket itself differs from that of the standard edition, being printed by the author in a very limited run - you will not find another copy like this. Synopsis - When everything grinds to a halt because of the snow, one small boy and his teddy bear refuse to allow the weather to spoil their fun. They embark on an amazing journey in which they ride a polar bear and meet huge snowmen, an ice queen, fairies, elves, a giant reindeer and Father Christmas. And at the very end of the story, in a wonderfully cosy and festive fireside scene, there's a clever twist - he has simply become immersed in the magical scenes of his favourite book.
