About The Book

You can be late for many things in life, but you should never keep an adventure waiting...

When the first snow of winter falls, Phoebe watches it from her bedroom in Griselda Bone's Home For Strays, wishing that the snow will bring with it some much-needed magic. However, in Griselda Bone's orphanage magic is banned, along with daydreaming and doodling, and Phoebe's day goes from bad to worse. But just when she's about to give up hope, a Snow Dragon appears and whisks her away on an adventure, and maybe, just maybe, there's enough magic to save Phoebe.

A beautiful story of friendship, magic and belonging by Abi Elphinstone, the author of THE DREAMSNATCHER series, with stunning illustrations from the fantastic Fiona Woodcock.

About The Author

Abi Elphinstone grew up in Scotland where she spent most of her childhood running wild across the moors, hiding in tree houses and building dens in the woods.

She is the author of The Dreamsnatcher, The Shadow Keeper, The Night Spinner and Sky Song. Abi has been shortlisted for numerous awards and Sky Song was selected as a Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month. When she’s not writing Abi volunteers for Beanstalk, speaks in schools and travels the world looking for her next story.
