Solomon Snow And the Silver Spoon
Solomon Snow always knew he was out of place in his family. His last name is different, he doesn’t look like his parents and he certainly has better manners.
So when he finds out that he was a foundling — an orphan left on someone’s doorstep — he goes looking for his real parents. The only clue he has is that he was found with a silver spoon in his mouth.
As Solomon searches for his mysterious spoon, he is joined by Prudence, a budding author; Rosabella, a little girl who has mastered the art of being adorable; Freddy, a filthy but cheerful chimney sweep; and Mr. Skippy, an apathetic rabbit who doesn’t live up to his name.
This book is written in the unfortunate style of Lemony Snicket. The characters are constantly running into problems, and there is a surprising ending.
It’s not the last chapter in Solomon’s adventures, either. When you finish this book, the sequel, “Solomon Snow and the Stolen Jewel,” awaits you.
