Summary

In this comic story, set in mock-Victorian times, Solomon Snow finds, to his amazement, that he is a foundling. A silver spoon was left with him as a baby, but his "Pa" pawned it. Solomon leaves home in high dudgeon to seek his spoon and his real parents.

Critic reviews

"This quest story for middle-graders has enough Dickensian moments and clever characters to find a welcoming audience." ( Booklist)

Fantastic

The late Rik Mayall absolutely nails it yet again. A great story read by the greatest story teller ever. I haven't even let the kids listen to it yet!!
