The Snow Merchant

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

Lettie Peppercorn hasn’t left her house-on-stilts for over ten years. She dare not. Her mother left a very specific warning on the day she left – stepping outside could kill her.

But when a mysterious, frozen man, who claims to be an alchemist, arrives at the door with a miraculous invention, Lettie’s life is changed forever and she has no choice but to risk the perils lurking in the world outside if she wants to see her mother again.

A pair of feisty and resourceful children have their work cut out trying to get the better of a cast of comical, but deadly, adversaries in this wildly imaginative fantasy adventure. The text is interspersed with expressive pen and ink illustrations.
