It is small, but "The House in the Snow" has a thrilling, suspenseful, involving story and is written very well. You can read this book over and over, it's a VERY easy read, but it's completely involving. It opens with Benjamin, an abused orphan, runs away and finds himself lost in the snow. The story unfolds quickly as he finds Mackie, a servant boy who escaped from a house full of cruel invisible robbers. See how it sounds silly?

This book is about two boys, one witch was kidnapped and the other is an orphan who meat in the middle of the woods because they are both running away from angry people wanting to kill them. One of them's name is Benjamin and is twelve years old and has ran away from all of his foster families and every time he runs away he is found and returned to a new family. It's been a year since I've read "The house in the snow" and I can still see everything that happened in that book because of how well it's sensory details are. I didn't read this book the first time I saw it. I put it down the first few attempts I gave it too. Once I read past page seven, I couldn't put it down.

The snow had melted around the house, but it lay cleanly in the garden, drifted against walls and shrubs. Mrs Rider’s cat picked its way across it, distasteful, leaving a trail of blue prints. The streets were quiet, the houses withdrawn, seemingly empty, in their packing of dark trees. Only the Parks exploded with sound: children squealing, dogs, snowballs, people running. Maureen came downstairs in a candlewick dressing gown and said her gas-ring was playing up. ‘All right if I do myself an egg down here?’ ‘Fine,’ said Clare. Fancy some bacon while I’m about it?’ ‘Yes, please

This was one of my favorite books as a child. I haven't seen it in several years. So glad I was able to find a new copy of it!

This is a boys' adventure (quite literally; there are no female characters at all) by the author of *Arslan*. Benjamin is an abused orphan serving in an inn- he escapes and meets Mackie, a small boy who serves a gang of thieves. I won't spoil what happens next, but younger readers will enjoy the action as Benjamin and Mackie take matters into their own hands. Very fast read. Recommended.

I adored this book when I was little, and it's still adult enough to keep my attention now. It tells the story of Benjamin, a young boy who runs away from his home in an inn in the middle of a bitter winter.
He finds himself at an ancient house, rumored to be haunted. But then a strange little boy named Mackie appears, and reveals that the inhabitants of the house are very much alive. A band of vicious, cutthroat robbers lives in the house, with a troop of orphaned servant boys. When the boys come of age, they are initiated into the band. A sinister addition is that the robbers have magic cloaks that enable them to become invisible.
Despite the fluffy-sounding plot, this is not a fluffy book. It includes small dollops of physical abuse, injury, and overall unhappiness, as well as a plot that shifts from action to suspense. But good wins out over evil in this gritty, pulse-pounding book. Kudos!

For my adult life, I have looked for the book that turned me into the reader I am today. This book hooked me as a child. This was the epitome of childhood adventure; action, suspense, and invisibility cloaks long before Harry Potter was even a thought to us. The adult mind often glorifies fond childhood memories, which can ultimately let you down when you find the reality to be less than you remember. That did not happen with this book. It was everything I remembered it to be and was great trip down memory lane.

I still have my original copy from when I was a kid. It's one of my favorites. Long before Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, I used to pretend I was invisible thanks to The House in the Snow. Really stood out as one of my childhood favorites. I kept a bunch of those good ones... I even still read them!
This is a very good book, but that is my opinion.

I think this book needs more action in it.

Also the robers I thout they where deamons at first but it turnd out they wern't. well thats all I have to say.
