As everyone knows there is nothing we love more at Christmas here at Jammy Toast than watching The Snowman. So last night we all gathered around the old gogglebox to watch Raymond Briggs’ latest masterpiece Ethel & Ernest. All we can say is that Ethel & Ernest is now being hailed as “another masterpiece from Raymond Briggs” as the heartfelt animation left most of us in tears. The film was based on Briggs’ 1998 graphic novel, and tells the story of how his dad, cheery milkman Ernest, first met his mum Ethel in 1928.
