Review quote

'Ollie has an adventure in the snowy forest on his skis meeting Jack Frost and King Winter, who shows Ollie his Ice Palace where all the Christmas presents are made. Ollie plays on his toboggan until Mrs Thaw comes with her broom, to sweep away the snow and make way for Spring, on her chariot pulled by butterflies. A beautiful, seasonal tale suitable for 3-7 year olds.' -- Hilary Woolf with Isaac, age 4, Education Otherwise, December 2004
