Editorial Reviews


In Gus and the Winter Sprite by J. Steven Young, a diminutive dragon named Gus is lamenting theloneliness that winter brings--after all, his friends are all hibernating for the season and his treasured garden has gone dormant--when a wintersprite comes zooming into his cozy house and interrupts the quiet.Crystal, the sprite, has a problem of her own: she's not like othersprites, and helping to bring on winter doesn't make her happy like itdoes everyone else. Gus swaps a story for a story and tells Crystal that he was once feared by the other inhabitants of the forest, who didn'tunderstand that Gus is actually harmless. Emboldened, Crystal tells Gusthat what she really wants to be is a phoenix, the legendary bird offire. She uses the power of a wish to transform into her heart's truedesire and helps awaken Gus's friends so that they can all gather for afestive winter party.

This cheerful children's book isbrimming with earnestness, emotional intelligence, and charm. Thestory's main characters, Crystal and Gus, connect by sharing theirvulnerabilities with each other and finding that this is the basis of agreat friendship. It's a great demonstrative tool to show kids thatfeelings aren't something to shy away from; they can be uncomfortable,but they are vital all the same. Written in verse, the book's text isaccompanied by computer-drawn pictures that have a potent energy tothem. The three-dimensional depth of each image is an effective andclever way of capturing the expressiveness of the book's characters.Ultimately, this book deserves a spot alongside the holiday classics.
