Book Review - Whatever After: Cold As Ice
About the Book
The magical sixth installment in this NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series!
Brrrrrrrr. This fairy tale is FREEZING!
Even though my brother and I had decided to stay away from the magic mirror, our puppy had other plans -- he bounded right in. What choice did we have but to go in after him?
When we land in a winter wonderland, we realize we must be in the story of The Snow Queen. And this fairy tale is nothing like the movie. This Snow Queen is super-mean, and she turns our dog into an ice sculpture!
To get home we'll have to:
- Defrost our furry friend
- Ride a very chatty reindeer
- Learn to ice-skate
- Escape from a band of robbers
And if we're not careful . . . we could end up frozen ourselves!
My Take on the Book
Another great book in the series of Whatever After books. This one takes a page from the popularity of Frozen, but don't think you will find the same story here. Far from it! This book is a fun tale that has such fun characters that I will tell you, my girls just loved. The characters are ones that they already somewhat feel that they know, but what they love is that they see them through the pages in this book, in situations that they have experienced (somewhat) for themselves. My eldest daughter said that these characters were so "real" and that they were "cool" (pardon the pun). On top of this my girls love the action in the book and how you never want to put the book down from the moment that you start reading it! This was a great book and we are definitely looking forward to the next installment in this great book series!
