Hi, I have the memory, but not the title, of a thin paperback? book that was in publication around 1960 or so. It was the story of three (I think old) women who lived together. Their furnace goes out and they have to go the basement to try and fix it. They are all swathed in scarves and coats and they have pointy red noses and they always go together when they have to go to the basement because it is scary. I don’t remember how it turns out. I have looked for it in every children’s bookshop that I know.
