When Bronwen and Dylan are frightened by ghostly noises from the
chimney on Christmas Eve, they run straight into the arms of their
neighbour Mrs O'Riley. As they step next door for the first time,
it's not just Bronwen and Dylan who can stop being afraid of what's
on the other side of their walls – Mam might just find a blessing
there too. 1930s Liverpool is brought alive with evocative drawings
in a story that recognizes the richness of human kindness, even in
times of hardship and poverty.
