Snowman Fix

© Susanna Coleman 2010

I received this fantastic letter from a reader of my book The History of the Snowman that I wanted to share. Thank you so much Susanna...

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your book. I've loved snowmen since I was a kid, but as I live in Alabama, I've built a grand total of two-- both under four feet tall. (The first was in 1993 in the "blizzard" of 93 when I was 11... the second was this past February when I was 28. His photo is enclosed.) Since I can't build real ones often, I resort to making snowman crafts... snowman jewelry, thread spool snowmen, Coke bottle snowmen, plush snowmen, button snowmen, etc., etc. (Kitsch, yes, but I have to get my fix somehow.)

Anyhow, I especially enjoyed the images, both your cartoons and the advertising items, plus the accounts of historical snowmen. I teach college English composition, and I'm trying to come up with an excuse for making the book required reading for my classes :) My students could definitely learn from it about how to make their essays interesting!

Thank you for such an amazing (and amusing) book! -Susanna"
