The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Useful book about Friendship.

Jack, a boy with a frozen touch, is taught magic in an enchanted forest by magical creatures and trees. And it's up to Jack Frost to save this magic from the jealous, stupid, goblins. Kazuno Kohara's distinctive lino-cut illustrations and limited colour palette provide the perfect counterpart to her spare, witty storytelling in this stylish new picture book - her first was Haunted House - with great child appeal.

Synopsis

Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara

If you lived in a house in the woods and all your friends were hibernating you'd probably hate winter, just like this little boy. But one day a strange spiky figure appears and transforms the boy's world into a winter wonderland! How long will the magic spell last?
