How many times have you been into the shop to get your car serviced and had to take your child with you? i can see this book lying on the table waiting for children to pick up. It takes an otherwise very boring even for a child and makes it magical..be sure to pick this book up..!

Here at WebbWeaver, we are HUGE fans of Eric B. Thomasma and his children's books. Some people just have a knack for entertaining children (which isn't always easy), Eric is one of those writers. With a warm, special way of dealing with some everyday, but unusual goings on, Thomasma's love of writing as well as his love for children shines through every, single syllable.

These little books are wonderful and, there isn't one that has come from this author that my children didn't adore!

YETI IN THE FREEZER

Written by Eric B. Thomas with illustrations by Lanin D. Thomasma. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com

To learn more about this author, visit his website at [...]

Meet Brady and Dot. Two ordinary kids with something truly extraordinary living just inside their freezer!

That's right... Brady and Dot return home one day to find a brand new refrigerator and some pretty scary sounds. The ice maker in the fridge seems to have a mind of its own; growling and hissing and making bumping sounds, until...

The two discover Frasier, a tiny Yeti living in the freezer who only lives to make ice. All Frasier wants in the whole world is to be appreciated for his hard work (after all, ice making is a tough business with no room for error)

So, what starts out as fear for the children quickly turns into a learning experience. As the three come to an agreement on what they will do for one another, we see examples of teamwork, acceptance and tolerance...Three things we need a lot more of in today's world.

In the end, everyone learns something, not only about others, but about themselves as well.

I absolutely ADORED this wonderful little gem.

I absolutely adore this book, and next time I am getting my car fixed I will definitely look at the men at the body shop in a different way. Children will love the imagination behind the story here, and it will surely make trips with daddy more interesting!

Eric and Lanin Thomasma create a very different story that I wasn't quite sure would be interesting enough for kids to hold. I mean, it's about a car going to get repaired, and the people that do the repair, how can that be of wide spread interest to children?

The more I read, the more I understood exactly what he was trying to do. With the use of bright, simple and colorful illustrations, he was able to visualize each person, as their normal self, and as the imagined wizard! When the owner of the shop says "I'll have my wizards get right on it", that sets off Cindy's imagination as to who was in the back. Even more so because it was inaccessible to her.

This allows her, as well as the reader to use their imaginations as to who is back there, and what they are doing to the car. And as each person comes out of the back in their funny clothes and mask, Cindy's dad explains exactly what they do and how they are wizards in an easily understandable way.

I'm not going to say that once your done reading you'll be able to fix a fender, but your child will have a new found appreciation for using their imagination for all sorts of things when they are out with you!

The Bottom Line: I had my reservations, I'll be perfectly honest. After reading this and thinking about it a bit though, I found it entertaining, wonderfully illustrated and raises a new and interesting way to get your kids imaginations flowing! One thing I will mention, and while it shouldn't make a difference, to some people it will, I really love the way he uses an African American family as the main characters. It's a departure from the rest of his work, but it also says on another level that everyone is equal no matter what they look like. It would be a great addition to any children's library.

This is a great book for the kids to read. The work in the wizard's garage becomes an adventure of fun and magic. A great gift for the holidays or birthdays...anytime!
