Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers, the place that is MORE than ready for the holiday reading season...aren't you?
Seriously, though I'm wishing it was colder out, I'm all ready with my cup of hot chocolate (mini-marshmallows and/or whipped cream required) and today's ebook of choice. Ah, but what's this? This particular title isn't just being released in ebook form, but PRINT form and from an author you've come to know and love. So, if you're ready to embark on a frosty reading adventure, join me in front of the fire for today's book of choice...
I love how our leading lad is not only a reader (*high five*) but a DOG lover! I mean his room speaks for itself, even if it could use a little straightening (boys will be boys). Today, he is setting out to find a four legged friend to call his own. Will he be near or far? High or low? Buried in a snow drift...or perhaps MADE of one? The possibilities are endless when you believe....
Call it a Frosty for a new generation, filled with the same magic the top hat of old brought us, just with a shorter stature, and an actual bark. Frostbite is the perfect winter time friend and though he must be wary of climbing temperatures, I'm glad to see that in the end, Mom comes through with a solution for one and all. (Good call Mom!)
Last but not least, one can never leave a Julia Dweck book without mentioning the artwork. She always finds amazing talent that deserves to be showcased, and this tale is no exception. Each scene captures the essence of what's transpiring, whether it's the little boys search for a furry friend, the snowball fight with Frostbite and the sledding kids, or the ending where a surprise awaits one and all. Every page will capture your imagination and draw you in for a closer look with all the detail included. Well done indeed!
So, if your heart has love to spare, your imagination room for magic, and you're jonesing for a fun wintery read, I'd definitely recommend this one for you and yours, the young and young at heart. After all, there's no age limit on the fun you can have between the pages nor minimum to begin indulging in it.
