Adventures in Flatfrost

9781481413893. ea vol: illus. by Robert McPhillips. 128p. (The Kingdom of Wrenly). S. & S./Little Simon. 2014.
Gr 1–3—Eight-year-old Prince Lucas and his best friend Clara, the daughter of the queen's seamstress, are no strangers to adventure. With Lucas's pet dragon Ruskin in tow, the courageous duo set out on more journeys, solving curses and searching for mysterious sea monsters, in these entertaining but tame, bite-size jaunts into the realm of witches, giants, and gnomes. Ideal for budding young fantasy fans and newly independent readers.
Prince Lucas and Clara search for a mysterious creature in the kingdom's waters (Monster); the duo investigates who may be responsible for the kingdom's endless rainfall (Curse); and they journey into the snowy mountains to replace the castle's ice supply (Flatfrost). The stories are a bit tame but will appeal to chapter-book readers who like fantasy. Black-and-white illustrations enhance the texts. Review covers these Kingdom of Wrenly titles: Adventures in Flatfrost, Sea Monster!, and The Witch's Curse.
