Overview

A festive winter story about how little Jack, the youngest, smallest boy in his village, grew up to become the legendary Jack Frost.

Before Jack Frost was famously nipping at your nose, he was known as little Jack, the youngest, smallest child in a village near the North Pole. Absolutely nobody paid attention to Jack. His sister could make snowflakes. His brother could make wind. His cousin could make water freeze. Everyone could DO things. Everyone, that is, except Jack.

But when he finally discovers his own exciting winter power, Jack is greeted by cheers and admiration from his entire village. He is even given a perfect nickname, which he goes by to this day: Jack Frost!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
In this cute explanation of the origins of the fictitious Jack Frost, we meet the youngest, smallest, littlest boy living in the "last little village right before the North Pole." This little Jack is unhappy because no one notices him or the things he tries to do. His sister, Arabella, and brother, Winslow, perform ice and snow tricks to great acclaim. Jack longs to have some special talent to garner the attention of his family and others in the village, too. The simple colorful drawings are perfect "picture clues" for early readers, and the multi-ethnic faces are very expressive. Jack cannot make snowflakes like Arabella or "blow until a cold wind swirl[s] up the snow" like his brother. All of his efforts are to no avail. Jack gives a big sigh of disappointment while gazing in frustration out his window. He is delighted with the design that sparkles across the glass. After that, Jack "paints" all of the windows in the village with his breath "until the entire village sparkled." Of course, everyone is very impressed with this great talent, and Jack comes into his own. He is give a nickname (something he has long desired), and everyone begins to call him "Jack Frost." This simple story is sure to appeal to children who will understand his need to be "noticed" and appreciated for himself. Being different is often a challenge. This story about finding one's niche is simplistic but will serve as a source of comfort for many. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
