Eleven year old Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard lost her mother exactly three months, seven days, and nine hours ago. Her father has brought Ophelia and her older sister Alice with him while he prepares an exhibit of swords in a museum in a town where it always snows.
There are only three days to prepare the exhibit for its opening on Christmas Eve.
Wandering through the museum, Ophelia finds The Marvelous Boy and finds out that she only has three days to save him, and the world!
This is a really fun read. It would be fun to read with your child, discussing as you go.
