Description

Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall he heads off into the woods and meets sparkling Jack Frost, who shoos away damp Mrs Thaw.

Jack Frost takes him on an adventure to the palace of King Winter. Ollie has a wonderful time in a huge snowball fight! But will Mrs Thaw return too soon for Ollie to enjoy the snow?

Reviews

'Ollie has an adventure in the snowy forest on his skis meeting Jack Frost and King Winter, who shows Ollie his Ice Palace where all the Christmas presents are made. Ollie plays on his toboggan until Mrs Thaw comes with her broom, to sweep away the snow and make way for Spring, on her chariot pulled by butterflies. A beautiful, seasonal tale suitable for 3-7 year olds.'
-- Hilary Woolf with Isaac, age 4, Education Otherwise, December 2004
