Frozen Solid at Silver Street Farm

By Nicola Davies
Illustrated by Katharine McEwen

Some farms are up in the hills ... or down long, winding lanes ... but Silver Street Farm is different – it's right in the middle of a town!

It’s winter and the residents of Lonchester are struggling against the Big Freeze. The ice on the canal is half a metre thick and there are snowdrifts two metres high! Meera, Karl and Gemma are delighted; school is closed which means they can be at Silver Street Farm all day. But there’s no time to play – the animals need a lot of looking after in the cold. As the weather gets worse many people in Lonchester find themselves stuck without food. But a chance encounter with Boris, a sled dog belonging to a stranded Russian ballet company, gives Meera a brilliant idea. With the help of the dancers, Boris and some friendly police dogs loaned by Sergeant Short, the Silver Street kids set up Lonchester’s first dog-sled delivery service and come to the rescue of all those in trouble!
