An enchanting and timeless winter tale from one of today's most celebrated picture book stars, read by Claire Foy.

From award-winning and bestselling picture book creator Benji Davies, comes a brand-new Christmas classic...

High, high up in the clouds a tiny snowflake is made. Perfectly small, fluffy, crystal and white, it tumbles and bounces inside the cloud. But then she begins to fall...

Exquisitely told and beautifully illustrated, The Snowflake tells the tale of one snowflake and one little girl - both longing for something and looking for their own special place in the world. The Snowflake is an utterly unforgettable and classic picture book from the multi-award winning and internationally bestselling picture-book creator, Benji Davies.
