    Quite a lovely little Christmas tale, and nowhere near as curmudgeonly as some of Thereaux s books Being for children, I suppose that s best The characterizations here are wonderfully done, Mrs Mutterance in particular I adore the way she makes up words in a LewisCarroll fashion, perfectly suited to whatever she s trying to say Lovely.

    This is a book that I have read and re read many times It is one of two Christmas stories that Theroux has written The other is A Christmas Card Libraries often class it as children s literature, but it is enjoyable for all ages.

    Another quick little Christmas story This one is about a woman who runs a sweetshop and her two adopted children, who go looking for their nasty landlord when he disappears a couple days before Christmas even though he plans to evict them Loved the descriptions of London in a rare snowfall and the lovely woodcut illustrations.

    A Christmas story of a Scrooge like figure, a miraculous snow storm, and changes of heart Language is beautiful, the story sweet and quirky.
