Book Review:
Grimmtastic Girls Snowflake Freezes Up

  Snowflake Freezes Up is a wonderful children's book with the Grimm brothers nursery rhyme and stories but without the true horror in the tales. It has a lot of children's favorite characters such as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack Frost and Rumpelstiltskin to name a few. The story takes place at the Grimm Academy where the children find out what story line or nursery rhyme they belong to and if they are good or evil. Well poor Snowflake has trouble controlling her powers and avoids making friends to protect herself and others from her accidental freezing people or other happenings.

Each student has magical powers with charms that makes that magic happen and Snowflake accidentally finds hers in the shape of a snowflake. What's this story without an evil villain, the one and only Jack Frost. He tries to manipulate Snowflake into being something that she's not, and with the help of her friends she finds out she may be a villain but it's what you do with that power makes you the person that you are and with the help of her snowflake charm it helps her to harness that power so no more accidents will happen.

I found Snowflake Freezes Up to be delightful, and the puns with each expression are creative and fun to read. This story has a lesson as it tells, don't judge a person by what they seem to be as Snowflake did to Dragonbreath. She assume he was dangerous because he was a dragon and he breathes fire, well it turns out he help Snowflake save the school from evil and he was always there to help her when she needed it. She also learned that having friends there by her side made what she was going through had made things easier for her. I definitely recommend this book for young readers I know I enjoyed it.
