A lazy, ugly cash-in. There are better Frozen books out there.
on April 2, 2014
This book is simply a collection of blurry stills from Olaf's "Summer Song" scene. They didn't even hire an illustrator! Visually this is just not an appealing book at all. But what about the writing, you ask? It is equally bad. There are a few words on each page, but there is nothing imaginative or original about them at all. They don't have anything to do with the movie, they aren't related to the actual song, and they don't even tell any kind of coherent story! It's more like a series of captions than an actual book, and anyone could have written this.
The whole book just seems like something that somebody whipped up in less than 30 minutes to try and cash in on the movie's popularity. There are MUCH better Frozen books available. Skip this one and use your $3 to buy your kid some ice cream instead!
If you're looking for a good Frozen book, try to get a copy of "A Sister More Like Me" at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1423170148/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . This is great for all ages and is an absolutely beautiful hardcover that is worth keeping.
Another good one to look for is the Frozen Little Golden Book. Find it at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0736430512/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i04?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . This is of course a lot smaller but still tells the whole story of the movie quite well. It's a bit wordier than some, so maybe save this for kids 4 and older.
