The Snow Spider by Jenny Nimmo

On Reading Monkey

Book 1

Gwyn on his Ninth birthday was given four strange gifts by his grandmother, Nain, who gave instructions for them, to be thrown one at a time to the wind. One was a brooch, the second was a piece of seawead, the third was a scarf and the fourth was a wooden horse. Later in the story when it was really windy Gwyn threw the brooch into the wind and the wind brought back the snow spider. The snow spider span a web for Gwyn to look into. Gwyn looked into it and saw his lost sister. Throughout the story, Gwyn throws the other gifts to the wind. As I read the story, I really wanted to know why Gwyn was throwing the presents to the wind. Soon I found out the reason why. Gwyn threw the scarf out of the widnow and to his amazement he made some wind come and the scarf got whipped away. Afterwards, the scarf brought back his sister.

Whilst she was staying, Gwyn's grandmother-Nain, tells him that he is a magician, but when Gwyn gets home he finds that his mother has washed the spider down the drain and he has nothing left to give to the wind apart from the wooden horse, but there is a very good reason in the story why he must not use it. He did use it and something terrible happened...

I enjoyed the suspense in this story. I couldn't predict what was going to happen next. I felt that I could relate to Gwyn as he is a similar age to me and it made me wish I had the same magical abilities as him.
