1 The Snowman One day we built a snowman, We built him out of snow; You should have seen how fine he was, All white from top to toe. We poured some water over him, To freeze his legs and ears; And when we went indoors to bed, We thought he'd last for years. But, in the night a warmer kind Of wind began to blow; And Jack Frost cried and ran away, And with him went the snow. When we went out next morning To bid our friend "Good Day", There wasn't any snowman there... He'd melted right away! The Blue Snowman By Margo Fallis Derek lay in his bed, all snuggly and warm. He heard the wind blowing outside his window. He was glad that he was inside. He fell asleep knowing that when he woke up, the ground would be covered with snow and he could build a huge snowman. He loved making snowmen. All night long it snowed. When he woke up, he hurried and made his bed, ate his breakfast, and got dressed in his snow boots, coat, hat and gloves. He couldn t wait to build a big snowman and make snow angels. He opened the front door and ran outside. He stopped suddenly and looked around. Something was different and very unusual. Instead of white, fluffy snow, the ground was covered with blue snow. He touched it. It felt like real snow. He packed some of it into a snowball. It packed like real snow. He picked some up and ate it. It tasted like real snow, but it was blue, the same color blue that was in his swimming pool in the summer. How could this be? He started walking around in it, making footprints with his boots.

2 It made footprints and crunchy sounds like real snow. He grabbed a handful and threw it up into the air. It fluttered to the ground like real snow. It must be real snow! Derek decided to make a snow angel. He lay down on his back and started waving his arms and legs out to the side, up and down, up and down. When he finished, he stood up and looked at it. It was blue, but it was a snow angel. He started laughing. He liked blue snow. He made a snowball and started rolling it around. It got bigger, and bigger, and bigger. Soon he couldn t push it because it was so big. He left it there, made another snowball and pushed it around, but didn t make it as big as the first. He picked the blue ball up and put it on top of the other one. He rolled another snowball around to make a head. He put it on top of the second ball. He stood back and looked at it. It was a big, blue snowman. Derek started laughing. He d never seen a blue snowman before. It looked funny. He found a handful or rocks under the snow. He carried them in his gloved hand and stuck them into the snowman, making two eyes and a mouth. He ran into the back garden and found an old carrot in the rubbish. It was a little limp and soggy, but good enough to use for the snowman s nose. He used two twigs for the arms. When he was finished, he examined his blue snowman. "Derek! Derek! It s time to wake up," his mother called. Derek sat up in his bed and rubbed his eyes. What was he doing in bed? He had just been outside building a blue snowman. "Time to get up, Derek. It snowed all night. I ll bet you want to make a snowman," she said, turning and leaving the room. "Get up and I ll fix breakfast and then you can go outside and play." Derek ran over to the window. He pulled the curtain open. It had snowed, but all the snow was white. He smiled. It had only been a dream. There was no such thing as blue snow after all, but he was still going to build a snowman and make a snow angel!

3 THE SNOWMAN CHARACTERS: SNOWMAN CHILDREN DOG SUN 2 CLOUDS CHILD 1 CHILD 2 SCRIPT: ACT I IN THE FRONT YARD OF A HOUSE. (The Snowman is outside a house. Some children play and yell. A dog lies beside the Snowman) SNOWMAN: Wow!. I m so happy today!. The weather is just great for me! (He sees the children playing). Ha, ha, ha, ha, they are so cold and soon they will get sick!. (he gets sad) Oh, how I wish I could move and walk just like they do, but I can t. (The dog stares at the snowman) Why are you staring at me?. DOG: My leg hurts and that means that soon the weather will change. (A child dressed as the sun enters the scene and walks around the stage. He/she leaves) SNOWMAN: I don t think so. The sun looks marvelous. It is really a beautiful day!. DOG: Don t trust the sun. He s not your friend. Someday, he will make you go away, disappear, you know. (Wind blows) You have to believe me!. (Two children dressed as dark clouds enter the scene and walk around the stage. They leave) DOG: I told you. It s getting colder!. SNOWMAN: I feel great in this weather. DOG: I don t. I miss being inside the house (the dog points to the

4 house), beside the stove. When I was little, I used to live inside that house. But when I grew up, they threw me out. Oh, my dear stove!. SNOWMAN: Stove? What s that? How does a stove look like? Does it look like me? DOG: Oh, my friend you ask too many questions. SNOWMAN: I want to know. DOG: Well, to begin with, you are all white and the stove is all black. She has a long neck and a brass knob. Oh, and she s always hungry, she eats too much firewood! When I was near her, I felt so warm. I miss her so much! SNOWMAN: I wish I could meet her. I wish I could stand beside her! DOG: You can t, they won t let you in. And even if you could get inside the house, you would die, my friend. SNOWMAN: Why? Are you telling me that she could harm me? DOG: That s exactly right! Look, can you see her through the window? SNOWMAN: Oh, yes I can. She looks so lovely. DOG: You should feel happy here in the cold weather. If you get near her, you will melt. Believe me, you will. (the dog complains) Ouch! SNOWMAN: What s wrong? DOG: My leg still hurts. Now I m sure, the weather will change! SNOWMAN: Try to rest, we ll talk tomorrow morning. DOG: Yeah. Good-night. SNOWMAN: Pleasant dreams. (They close their eyes) ACT II IN THE FRONT YARD OF A HOUSE. DOG: (He opens his eyes and doesn t see the snowman) Where is

5 he?. Hmmm, where can he be? (He looks up to the sky) Oh well, at least the sun is up, and it s getting warmer. Oh no, I lost my friend! (Two children approach. Child 1 sees a broomstick on the ground. He kneels down to pick it up) CHILD 1: See, I told you. This is all that s left from the snowman!. (Child 1 picks up the broomstick) CHILD 2: But, he was here yesterday. I saw him!. CHILD 1: I know, I saw him too, but you knew he would melt someday. Come on, next year we ll do another one. (Child 1 leaves the broomstick on the floor. The two children leave) DOG: So they used a broomstick to build him up. (The dog sees a shovel on the floor) Oh, there s the shovel that was used for cleaning out the stove, fastened to the pole. The Snow Man had a stove scraper in his body!. That s why he wanted so much to be near the stove. I think he was in love with her!. Oh well, it s all over now. (The dog leaves) THE END Author: Hans Christian Andersen (1861) Adapted by K I D S I N C O
