Collins Red Storybooks are longer, satisfying stories for confident young readers.
Illustrated by Paul Howard
In freezing hail and howling wind, a stranger is given shelter at Theo's house - a stranger who loves telling stories and whose name is Mrs Scarum. Theo is convinced she's a witch and wishes his father would return home from his travels. But the blizzard continues and the night is long . . . there may be tears before morning.
A gentle yet wonderfully atmospheric story from an award-winning author.
