London Snow

Book Description
On a narrow London street the sweet-shop crackles with color. Red-ribboned chocolate boxes are piled high, trays of glazed fruit and bins of glistening candies ring the Christmas tree. Above the shop the cozy rooms are home for white-haired Mrs. Mutterance and for her “children,” young Amy and Wallace. And around the shop, over the whole of the city, drifts the greatest blizzard London has ever known. For the children it means sliding down Latchmere Hill on tea trays, for Mrs. Mutterance a sudden recollection of her own long-ago Cockney childhood.

But there is something else. Only the day before, the surly landlord, Snyder, had threatened to evict the little family from shop and home. Now Snyder has vanished. Is he lost in the snow? What should Mrs. Mutterance and the children do for the man she scornfully calls “Beanwit”? The answer is both exciting and heartwarming.
