Solomon Snow and the Silver Spoon
author: Kaye Umansky
illustrator: Scott Nash
Solomon Snow lives in a run-down cottage just outside the village of Boring, works for Ma and Pa Scubbins's laundry business, and has nothing to eat but a gloppy stew known as pottage. It's a pitiful existence, but it's all Solly knows. Then, one day, a secret is revealed that changes his life forever—a secret that happens to involve a mysterious silver spoon.
On his resulting quest, Solly is joined by a curious cast of characters: a sharp-minded girl named Prudence, a charming child called the Infant Prodigy, and a filthy (yet extremely cheerful) chimney sweep. Can Solly's new friends help him to reclaim his spoon—and his true identity?
Prepare, dear reader, for the tale of Solomon Snow, his bossy friend Prudence, and the insufferable Infant Prodigy as they set out in search of Solly’s rightful inheritance — despite some woeful misadventures along the way!
