The snippets of Christmas pantomime in this book sound so much like the British comedies on TV, that I was enchanted. The mystery, however, was heart rending--two children killed, then their teacher, followed by yet another child's disappearance. All the searching through snow and cold to try to find the children contrasted with the gaudiness of the theatre was well done. The relationships between the characters make me wonder what the next book in this series will bring.
