The Snow Spider


‘Time to find out if you are a magician, Gwyn’

Gwyn’s grandmother leaves him five gifts: a brooch, a piece of dried seaweed, a tin whistle, a scarf, and a broken toy horse. She tells him they will help make him a magician – but can Gwyn use them to bring his missing sister, Bethan, home?

The Snow Spider won the 1986 Smarties Grand Prix and it was awarded the Tir na n-Og Award in 1987. This edition celebrates its 30th anniversary of first publication.

Fantastic reading for Harry Potter fans from the author of Charlie Bone. Children who loved Moondial and Tom’s Midnight Garden will relish this book. Perfect for readers aged 8 years and up.
