The Polar Bear Piper by Erica David -- ADVISABLE

A family of polar bears has shown up in Arendelle and is causing havoc every -- from the bakery to the laundromat to the docks. Arendelle may be cold and snowy, but it doesn't usually attract polar bears. Where did these creatures come from? More importantly, how can Anna and Elsa help them get back home?

This is a cute story with some humor and mystery, and Anna's Nancy-Drewish tendencies are fun. Because Frozen has avid fans who devour anything that hints of Anna and Elsa's presence, and because this book is so accessible for students who are beginning to read chapter books, this would make a nice addition to a school library.

EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
