Review – Frostbite by Julia Dweck

img_1935A super-fun story for the holiday season. The little hero of the story always wanted a dog but his mum said no. So one cold and snowy day he decides to go out and find a dog. Magic, of sorts, ensues and soon the boy has a dog made of sticks and snow to play with. Much like The Snowman, a trip home causes problems, not because Mum objects, but the warmth inside sets in a thaw! All ends well, with a bit of ingenuity.
The story is told in funny rhyme that really works and the illustrations, quite frenetic in their style, are great.
A lovely book for around the five year age range I would think.
