A light-hearted look at life as a South London child in the 1930s. In 1932 Len Langrick - aged five and known affectionately as "Snowball" - moved with his family to their new home above an undertaker's premises in Battersea, London. It was the beginning of a period of many adventures: getting to know the area and its residents, making new friends and, of course, finding himself a school to attend. In this charming memoir he recounts even such episodes as his spell in an isolation hospital suffering from Scarlet Fever with a characteristic wry touch and spares no detail of the fun small boys can have with coffins.
