The children fall in love with their snowy creation. They even provide a scarf and hat to keep him warm. Later that night, the Frost King, bringer of all snow, flew overhead. Spying the cool canine, he stopped and decided to make the pooch his companion.
Snow Dog can't believe that he has come to life! The Frost King happily scoops him up and flies back to his icy palace. Snow Dog cares greatly for the King, but deeply misses Anna and Olen. He must now make the ultimate decision: live forever with the King or risk melting away to be with the children he loves.
I thought this was a fantastic read. The story is a mixture of Frosty the Snowman meets Pinocchio. Krupinski has created in-depth characters that are full of heart. The idea of a Frost King bringing the winter snow is truly magical. Children will love the sense of fantasy that this story evokes.
Krupinski's illustrations are stunning. Most of the scenes take place at night. She does a magnificent job of balancing the dark background with cool blue tones to create winter pictures that will make readers want to snuggle up with a blanket a mug of cocoa.
This is a wonderful book for animal lovers of all ages.
