Snow Woman

By David McKee
Illustrated by David McKee

Master storyteller David McKee challenges gender stereotyping, when a child decides to build a snow woman instead of a snowman.

When Rupert and Kate tell their parents they're going to make a snowman, both Mum and Dad correct them, "You mean a snowperson." Originally published over 30 years ago, this is a deceptively simple story that overthrows gender stereotypes in a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek way that only David McKee could accomplish.

  • Challenges unnecessary gender stereotyping in a way which is very easy for children to understand.
  • David McKee is the creator of well-known characters including King Rollo, Mr Benn and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant. His books are enjoyed by children all over the world.
