A #1 New York Times Bestseller!

Walt Disney Animation Studios presents an epic tale of adventure and comedy with Frozen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a young dreamer, must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, and his reindeer on the grandest of journeys to find Anna's sister, the Snow Queen Elsa, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction. Frozen: The Junior Novelization retells the whole exciting story and features eight pages of full-color scenes from the movie!

Sister princesses face travails when one cannot control her ice magic. This "junior novelization" of the Disney film diligently follows its plot but cannot match its appeal. Almost scene by scene it unfolds, from the opening ice-harvesting montage through the childhood accident that causes Elsa to withdraw from Anna, Elsa's disastrous coronation, her flight to her ice palace, and Anna's struggle to bring her back with the help of doughty Kristoff, reindeer Sven and goofy snowman Olaf. Unfortunately, where the plot's arbitrariness—where does Elsa's magic come from? What do the trolls have to do with it? How can loving parents allow their troubled daughter to alienate herself?—can be forgiven as computer-generated filigrees of ice swoop across the screen, music swells, and dialogue is given voice by talented actors, it is all too evident in this print version that lacks the film's advantages and does nothing to compensate beyond sprinkling extra exclamation points around. Funny moments of film slapstick are laboriously and unfunnily explained, and the film's songs are given flat summaries: "…Olaf went on and on about all the wonderful things he would do in summer…"; the anthemic "Let It Go" receives not even a snippet of a quote. The only thing adapters Nathan and Roman do to capitalize on their medium is to use Olaf's name for Elsa's snow monster throughout its appearance: "Marshmallow roared—and charged after them!" Alas, the humor is lost in the pedestrian prose. At $4.99, it's cheaper than the movie, but it's still a bad deal. (Fantasy. 8-12)

Amazing!!! I read this book in fourth grade and now in fifth. When I read this it was a perfect book for me! I loved how this book told the whole entire story just like the movie! I also liked how it involved some of the pictures from the movie in the middle of the book. This book made me laugh exactly how the movie made me. This book was great and I would totally recommend this book to fourth graders or lower depending on your reading level. I hope I helped some people out with this comment! :-]

Perfect way to conclude my Summer Reading Program! Just got it and read it today, but since it's much easier to read than Rick Riordan's books and the entire Divergent trilogy. Less than two months ago, I watched Frozen on demand and since then I've wanted to read its book and so I did. In my last customer review (to see more of my customer reviews saga, look in Allegiant, Batman Incorporated Volume 2, the Lightning Thief and YU-GI-OH Zexal Volume 3), you thought I only owned YU-GI-OH Zexal Volume 3, but what you don't know is that before YU-GI-OH Zexal Volume 3, I received a Dragon Ball Z book and then I got YU-GI-OH Zexal Volume 3 and after that, more books from YU-GI-OH Zexal came along in addition to Magi the Labyrinth of Magic, YU-GI-OH GX, YU-GI-OH 5D's and Attack on Titan, but those were received as Nook Samples compared to the first two, but now I no longer have these titles including Frozen the Junior Novelization  (this book) because I either donated them all to Goodwill or deleted them all. Another junior novelization I'd owned was Brave in 2012 (also by Disney) so it's probably from the makers of this book, but just like how the Frozen movie is the most recent movie I've seen, this book is the most recent one I've read, well at least until Pokemon makes a strategy guide for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire so I'll end my Summer Reading program now before things get out of hand. Date of Origin: June 21, 2014 (one day after the last customer review).
