Among the Betrayed by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Everything that had happened to Nina was real. She had real handcuffs on her wrists, real scars on her back, real fear flooding her mind.
Theyre going to kill me, Nina whispered, and it was almost a relief to finally, finally give up hope.
In a society that allows no more than two children per family under penalty of death, third children are forced into hiding, or to live with false identity papers. In Among the Impostors, Nina Idi was arrested for treason for supposedly trying to trick the Population Police into arresting other students she said were illegal third children. Now she faces torture or death -- unless she agrees to betray three other imprisoned third children. Her dilemma intensifies when she meets the prisoners -- who are only ten, nine, and six.
As she did so brilliantly in the Publishers Weekly best-selling Among the Hidden and in Among the Impostors, Margaret Peterson Haddix once again brings readers to a world in which nothing is as it seems -- a world in which an imprisonment leads to an adventure of mind, body, and spirit.

The Snowman and the Snowdog, Channel 4, review
The Snowman and the Snowdog. The Snowman and the Snowdog, the sequel to the Raymond Briggs classic The Snowman, is another gentle story of friendship and loss. Billy, who looks remarkably like the young boy in the original, moves into a new house. Tragically his beloved pet dog has died and so, as the first snowflakes of winter fall, Billy builds a snowman with a dog at its side. At the stroke of midnight they come alive and take him on a magical adventure to the North Pole. Summary Animated sequel to Raymond Briggs' classic festive tale The Snowman, telling the story of another youngster's magical Christmas.
The team behind the Oscar-nominated film have now created The Snowman and The Snowdog — a brand new tale that will premiere on Channel 4 in December. Briggs, 78, was consulted on the new film dubbed Snowman 2 and helped shape the new character the Snowdog — complete with odd socks for ears and a satsuma for a nose. Adapted for the screen from the book in , The Snowman has been shown by Channel 4 every year since first release and has enchanted generations of children. The song Walking in the Air is sung in the film by Peter Auty but was covered years later by Welsh chorister Aled Jones in a single which reached number 5 in the charts. By Mirror.

Channel 4 has released a new free-to-play Snowman and the Snowdog app based around the sequel to the classic Christmas movie. The app tasks players with flying the Snowman to the North Pole, all the while dodging obstacles on the way. It follows on from a game released by the broadcaster this time last year, which was downloaded over 1 million times in three weeks. It is not unlike Temple Run , but a lot less challenging as it is obviously aimed at kids. Players fly the Snowman through various scenes and settings found in the animation, and the game also adopts a similar art style to the animation. The game is free to play, but does feature some in-app purchasing. It is possible to turn off the option to buy things completely when the app first boots up, to stop accidental money being spent by younger players.
By Dominic Cavendish. Did we cry at The Snowman and the Snowdog Channel 4? Yet the new story was so lightweight — adding little besides a cute, quivering-nosed snow-puppy, repeating a fair amount from before, subtracting a surprising number of elements too — that it barely left an imprint, mainly stirring nostalgia for the masterpiece in whose footsteps it reverentially followed.

Over the past 29 years, annual screenings of the TV adaptation of Raymond Briggs's picture book The Snowman have become an integral part of Christmas. Now, on the 30th anniversary of its first broadcast, the original has friendly competition from The Snowman and the Snowdog , a new animation featuring the be-hatted, smiling fellow. Not written by Briggs but approved by him, The Snowman and the Snowdog was charming, and a treat to look at. It was sensitive, too; a real heart-string tugger. The snowdog was unreservedly cute.
The Snowman and the Snowdog is a animated short film. It is the sequel to The Snowman , and was created to mark the 30th anniversary of the original short film. The story begins similarly to The Snowman , at the house where James, the boy from The Snowman , used to live. Once in the open countryside, it is now in a housing estate.
