A children's book based on John Lewis' charming Christmas TV advertisement will launch next month.

Publisher Nosy Crow has teamed up with the retailer for the picture book, which is written in rhyme and will hit stores on December 1st.

According to the publisher, the book went from an initial idea to a finished product in just three weeks.

The Snowman's Journey TV ad - launched on November 9th - currently has nine million views on YouTube.

Craig Inglis, Marketing Director at John Lewis, said, “I was thrilled to find out that Nosy Crow liked our Christmas advert enough to publish a book based on its story. 

"Our snowman seems to have captured the imagination of a wide audience, so it’s great that children can now enjoy his epic journey in such a magical book.”
