Product description

Review

Foxlee's writing is elegant and accessible, with a pervading melancholy ... this story shines. * Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review * A well-wrought, poignant and original reworking of Andersen's "The Snow Queen." * Kirkus Reviews, starred review * This clever story-within-a-story reads easily yet offers deep lessons about trust, responsibility, and friendship. * Booklist, Starred Review * Foxlee's deftness with characterization and setting also makes this a satisfying fantasy * The Horn Book * Foxlee inventively weaves familiar folkloric elements-an evil snow queen, a magic sword, a quest, a chosen one-into her modern setting, all the while evoking a mood of dreamlike foreboding. * The Bulletin *

Product Description

In which young Ophelia rescues a magical boy, battles the Snow Queen, and saves the world

Eleven-year-old Ophelia might not be brave, but she certainly is curious. Her family are still reeling from her mother's death, and in a bid to cheer everyone up, her father has taken a job at a fantastically enormous and gothic museum in a city where it never stops snowing. Ophelia can't wait to explore - and she quickly discovers an impossibility. In a forgotten room, down a very dark corridor, she finds a boy, who says he's been imprisoned for three-hundred-and-three-years by an evil Snow Queen who has a clock that is ticking down towards the end of the world.

A sensible girl like Ophelia doesn't quite believe him, of course, but there's no denying he needs her help. There are many other, darker, impossibilities in this museum too. Ghosts, wolves, Misery Birds, magical swords - and even fabled Snow Queens - will all do their very best to stop Ophelia and hurt her family. She will have to garner all her courage, strength and cleverness if she is to rescue this most Marvellous Boy - and maybe even save the world in the process.
