Granny's Wonderful Chair

by Frances Browne

This is the story of Snowflower. Left to fend for herself by her grandmother, Dame Frostyface, Snowflower turns to the ‘wonderful chair’ for company. The chair is able to tell stories and to transport Snowflower wherever she wants to go. In the search for her grandmother, Snowflower visits a magical land. Ruled by King Winwealth, Snowflower entertains the court with nightly stories narrated by the chair. Individual fairy stories, framed by Snowflower’s experiences at court, result in a charming story that has left me eager to read more by Frances Browne.
