The Adventures of a Snowman
The Adventures of a Snowman was originally published in the Collins' Girls' Annual 1954, above, and was reprinted in the Crackerjack Book for Girls in 1959, below. For reasons unexplained, the story is not included in Susan and Friends: The Jane Shaw Companion. This may be because it is a story for younger children or because it does not fit into any of the sections of the book, i.e., Jane Shaw's France or Jane Shaw's South Africa. However, the annuals are currently available from several booksellers in the UK, Canada and Australia, and are not very high in price.
