Captain Cool and the Ice Queen Pack of 6 by Gerald Rose

Captain Cool and the Ice Queen is a swashbuckling tale of adventure on the high seas. Join the Captain and his intrepid cat Patch as they foil the Ice Queen's plot to freeze the world's oceans. The cartoon-like format is attractive to reluctant readers and children will enjoy Patch's dreadful puns and hunting for visual jokes in the lively illustrations. Captain Cool and the Ice Queen is one of thirteen books that make up Independent Reading Level A, for children in Year 3/Primary 4. This phase of Cambridge Reading aims to extend children's experience of fiction, motivate them to enjoy reading, and improve their independence as readers.

About the Author

Gerald Rose was born in Hong Kong. When the Second World War started, his father became a prisoner of war, and Gerald and his mother were interned in a civilian camp, which was where he saw his first live tiger. Gerald studied at Lowestoft School of Art and the RA schools. Frustrated by the dearth of good illustrated books for children, his wife, Elizabeth, helped him to write and illustrate a number of books. Gerald won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1960 for Old Winkle and the Seagulls and won the Premio Critici in 1979 in Erba, Italy for 'Ahhh!' Said Stork. Gerald now lives in Hove, East Sussex.
