Join Clementine on a Winter Adventure in the Great Outdoors!

Clementine and her two boys set out for adventure on a snowy morning, mittens and imaginations in tow, and discover, among the many wonders revealed during a day outside, the miracles of cascading ice falls, a warren of rabbits, and golden fish in a frozen pond. When they return home, their imaginations are warm as a fireside!

"Ice Breaking brims with lively, engaging illustrations. I love a children's book with real art. Many modern children's books take shortcuts, but Icebreaking is a book to keep on the coffee table to enjoy again and again."

-- Markee Travis, Delta County librarian and artist

“Clementine the Rescue Dog steals the show from the humans during their fun romp, and she shows them how to climb the snowy banks of their imaginations. They delight, and you will enjoy their marvelous adventure!”"

-- Steve Rabey, author of Star Struck and other books

“I love the softness portrayed in the illustrations. Clementine is incredibly expressive. The simple escapades of the children are enchanting and full of joy. What a pleasure to immerse ourselves in their play!”

-- Carol McDermott, poet, teacher and school board member

“I am delighted to see Barbara Torke’s humorous and expressive illustrations enhance the story of Clementine and her boys. The furry friends come alive in Barbara’s creative hands: winter becomes welcoming and bright!”

-- Maryellen Miller, artist, gallery owner and writer
