With mixed excitement and trepidation, the girls agree to look after the orphaned lamb, Snowdrop. But it's only January, and as snow falls, the farm is cut off. Now the girls are in sole charge and Snowdrop falls ill. They call the vet who offers no solution except patience and tender loving care. Lexi and Lily prepare for an overnight vigil ...
Humour and suspense are plentiful in the fourth gripping 'Muddy Paws' story for confident readers.
