The Snow Spider (Paperback)Jenny Nimmo (author)
- In stock online
It was an exceptional sensation, reading by spiderlight.
Jenny Nimmo’s award-winning children’s story The Snow Spider is celebrating its 30th anniversary. It is a tale woven with ancient folklore and magic, one that reflects the author’s love of the Welsh landscape.
When Gwyn is given five mysterious birthday gifts by his grandmother, they give him access to a new and fantastic universe; a universe that will endow Gwyn with ancient magical powers and may even help him to find his missing sister Bethan.
The Snow Spider is our Children’s Book of the Month for November 2016; it is our pleasure to present Nimmo’s beautiful tale to a new generation of young readers and hopefully reconnect those who fell for her mythical-magic the first time round.
Jenny Nimmo has won many literary awards for her children’s fiction. While she has been in print since the seventies, it was the publication of her 2002 fantasy title Midnight for Charlie Bone that propelled Nimmo to huge success on either side of the Atlantic.
