The Snow Merchant, Paperback Book


This new edition has artwork from award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.

Lettie Peppercorn lives in a house on stilts near the wind-swept coast of Albion.

Nothing incredible has ever happened to her, until one winter's night, when the night the Snow Merchant comes.

He claims to be an alchemist - the greatest that ever lived - and in his suitcase, he carries his newest invention: snow. "A tale of self discovery, family and friendship inventive and accomplished debut". (Independent on Sunday). "A delightful debut ...full of action and invention". (The Sunday Times). "A germ of JK and a pinch of Pullman". (TES).
