Winter’s Child by Cameron Dokey

Dokey, Cameron Winter’s Child, 173 p. Simon Pulse, 2009. $6.99. Content: G. Grace and Kai have grown up together, feasting on the fantastic stories told by Kai’s grandmother, especially the story of the Winter Child. As they get older, however, as Kai is trying to draw the two closer, Grace pushes him away – right into the clutches of the Winter Child, who sweeps him away to the end of the earth and her castle of ice and snow. Now Grace must undertake an epic journey – maybe to save Kai, but maybe the purpose is something all together different. This new addition to the “Once Upon a Time” series is another good rendition of the story of the Snow Queen. Your students who love these fairy tales will also enjoy this. MS – ADVISABLE.
