Children's Literature
Jack and Annie of Frog Creek are happily baking Christmas cookies with their mother when they realize that it is the evening of the winter solstice. Remembering that their friends, Merlin and Morgan le Fay, had last called for their help on the summer solstice they race out doors to search for the magic tree house in the Frog Creek woods just in case they are needed again. They soon come across the tree house and their friends, Teddy and Kathleen, from Camelot. It is Teddy and Kathleen who have come this time to summon the help of Jack and Annie after finding a message from Merlin. Transported by the tree house to a magical frozen land, the four children encounter the fearful Ice Wizard and soon realize that it was he who actually sent for them. Jack, Annie, Teddy and Kathleen quickly understand that they will have to help the Ice Wizard in order to find the missing Merlin and Morgan le Fay. Armed only with a rhyme, a wind string and sleigh, the foursome set out upon another adventurous "Merlin Mission." As another fine installment of the "Magic Tree House" series, Mary Pope Osborne continues to delight young readers with the adventures of Jack and Annie through time and history. The subtle introduction to the world of myths and legends is wonderful in helping children to appreciate the art of storytelling. 2004, Random House, Ages 6 to 9.

Merlin the magician and Morgan le Fay have mysteriously disappeared! To find them, Jack and Annie journey with their friends Teddy and Kathleen to a frozen kingdom of ice and snow. There they must go on a mission for the one-eyed Ice Wizard, Chased by wolves and braving terrible storms, they have only two things to heip them- a magic rpoe and the Ice Wizard's strange rhyme: take my sleigh And find your way To the House of the Norns In the curve of the bay. Pay them whatever They tell you to pay. Then bring back my eye By break of day.

I love the magic treehouse, and Winter of the Ice Wizard was one of the best of them all. Non-stop action from the moment they find the stone with a message from Merlin. My favorite part was when they found the sleigh after being chased by wolves. If you haven't already read this book, you should pick it up. There's no other way to learn why the Norns insist that you should never look at the Frost Giant!

The book I am reviewing is Winter of the Ice Wizard by Mary Pope Osborne. I think this book deserves three stars because it is a little strange. This book is about a brother and a sister who have to find the Ice Wizard¿s eye. They have to get past the wolves and the Frost Giant, and also get help from the norns. A problem that occurs in the story is that there is no way to travel. I would recommend this book to friends. Other books by this author include Day of the Dragon King, Ghost Town at Sundown, and many more!

Mary Pope Osborne may not be the most inspired children's author ever, but when you get right down to it, her books are a lot of fun. When you read the last page of Winter of the Ice Wizard you are not going to close the book overwhelmed and reflect on what you read. You are more likely to move right on to the next book on your list. And ten years from now, when you think about all the wonderful books you read as a child you will probably be thinking of other books, but in the meantime you will have a fun few days reading this one.
