Trailer ✓ The Snowstorm PDF by õ Beryl Netherclift A truly beautiful book full of magic and wonder while also being an English family sent to live in the country with older relatives so it s comforting in the element of already having been there while still being a new adventure My absolutely favorite book when I was a kid.
When Caroline, Kit and Richard find themselves visiting their Aunt Amethyst in an English country house called Farthingales, they discover an old snow globe which takes them back in time Using the snow globe, they befriend a boy who lived in the house in its prime, and by pooling their knowledge, try to recover the lost family fortune.
What a great book with all the elements of a mysterious, fun story old house, magical snow globe, lost treasures, eccentric aunt people from the past and three children trapped on their own in a snowstorm.
A book that I loved as a kid I was a total bookaholic as soon as I learned to read, and I adored all things mystery Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Bobsey Twins, Happy Hollisters, all of Enid Blyton s ten thousand or so mystery series And of course the books that weren t part of series When you added in a bit of fantasy, well, then I was in seventh heaven.
I recently was looking through the donated books at the library used book sale and found a copy of this old story and bought it to re read Now, as an adult, I can t believe what the adults let the kids do in that time, things that would get them hauled up on child endangerment charges nowadays, but that at the time I didn t think anything about Of course, I don t know if that was because I was a kid or if it was just the different mind set of that time Back when we were all younger and innouce
