The Snow Merchant

By Sam Gayton
Illustrated by Chris Riddell

The Snow Merchant is a fantastic, hugely imaginative, quirky debut by Samuel Gayton. It's a story of alchemy, family and an astonishing new creation, snow.

Lettie Peppercorn lives in a house on stilts near the wind-swept coast of Albion. Nothing incredible has ever happened to her, until one winter's night. The night the Snow Merchant comes. He claims to be an alchemist - the greatest that ever lived - and in a mahogany suitcase, he carries his newest invention. It is an invention that will change Lettie's life - and the world - forever. It is an invention called snow.
