As delicious as sprinkles on a warm sugar cookie! Winterfrost is a charming fictional story about a twelve-year-old girl and her baby sister living on a farm in Denmark. The Larsen family is getting ready to celebrate Christmas Eve and suddenly needs to go to the hospital, because the grandmother broke her hip. Meanwhile, Bettina Larsen, the 12-year old girl, has to stay on the farm all by herself with her baby sister, Pia! With all the commotion, the Larsen family forgot to put out a bowl of rice pudding for the nisse tradition! The nisse are tiny gnome-like creatures. Maybe the nisse are real, maybe they are not? You’ll have to read this book to find out! My favorite character is Bettina, because she is smart, brave, and happy, just like me! This book is full of action when Bettina has to be very brave in a difficult situation! She has to set things right before her parents come back from their week-long trip! There are tons of surprises throughout the book. The book is 259 pages, so it is suitable for children ages 7-12. Parents would like to read it with younger children, too! I give this book a 4 star rating. So, grab your warm blanket and curl up to enjoy Winterfrost! Review by Brooke Z., age 7, Delaware Valley Mensa

I personally love Christmas time, and I enjoy reading stories that circulate around the holiday season. Winterfrost is a great winter tale with an interesting plot and setting. I plan on sharing it with the little girls I babysit. However, I do agree with another reviewer about jumping through hoops to get the story on my Nook. It wasn't at all convenient. ***I received a free copy of this book, and in exchange, I have provided an honest review.***
