Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michele C. Hughes
Friends Kirsty and Rachel are thrilled to be on a winter vacation together. Things get even more exciting when they meet Gabriella, the Snow Kingdom Fairy, who needs their help to retrieve her magic snowflake from the wicked Jack Frost. Why does she need their help specifically? The reader does not know. In fact, this story is laden with implausible plot elements. For one thing, Gabriella can turn the girls into snowmen with her magic but cannot, for some reason, incapacitate the goblins in order to reclaim the snowflake. Once they get the snowflake back in what should be an exciting ski chase (but really is not), Jack Frost steals the festive spirit from the Fairyland castle, causing the reader to wonder why security is not increased after the first incident. Then the girls—perhaps in an effort to teach good morals—will not lie to Jack Frost about the whereabouts of Gabriella, yet they purposely mislead him by omission. Finally, when Jack Frost steals the magic firestone, thus preventing fires of any sort, the story descends beyond ridiculous. Tension should be mounting as the community gathers for the bonfire at the Winter Festival, but all that is growing in the reader is disbelief. Simple, uninspired illustrations match the simple, uninspired story. Even a "special winter word" hidden in the snowball illustrations will not intrigue the reader. Reviewer: Michele C. Hughes
