    Quite a lovely little Christmas tale, and nowhere near as curmudgeonly as some of Thereaux's books. Being for children, I suppose that's best. The characterizations here are wonderfully done, Mrs. Mutterance in particular. I adore the way she makes up words in a LewisCarroll fashion, perfectly suited to whatever she's trying to say. Lovely.

    This is a book that I have read and re-read many times. It is one of two Christmas stories that Theroux has written. (The other is A Christmas Card.) Libraries often class it as children's literature, but it is enjoyable for all ages.

    Another quick little Christmas story. This one is about a woman who runs a sweetshop and her two adopted children, who go looking for their nasty landlord when he disappears a couple days before Christmas even though he plans to evict them. Loved the descriptions of London in a rare snowfall and the lovely woodcut illustrations.
