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 have a son who was extremely afraid of the ice-maker at his Nanny's house; so much so that he stopped visiting for spend the nights. I would have given anything to have had this book during those days. Sweet characters, wonderful life lessons and some of the cutest little drawings to accompany it,
Eric B. and Lanin impress again with this fun, little book.
A 5-spider book all day long!
THE WIZARDS OF THE BODY SHOP
Written by Eric B. Thomasma, with illustrations by Lanin D. Thomasma
It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com
When Cindy's father's car gets dinged up, it's up to them to take it to see The Wizards of the Body Shop!
Taking a simple concept that most of us never even think about, and turning it into an adventure, is a trademark of Eric B. Thomasma. This book is no exception.
A wonderfully fun little book with enough great pictures and words to get the kid's imaginations flowing.
If you have ever taken a child with you to have your car worked on, then this is the book for you. THE WIZARDS OF THE BODY SHOP is sure to be a favorite among children of all ages.
Endearing characters, fun and vivid illustrations AND there is even a bit of magic. You just can't go wrong with this one.
As a mom myself, I can easily see this book in auto dealerships and mechanic's lobbies as a way of entertaining the tiniest of customers. Your child will fall in love with THE WIZARDS OF THE BODY SHOP and so will you!
This book belongs on EVERY child's bookshelf.
I am giving THE WIZARDS OF THE BODY SHOP a 5-spider rating and recommending it to children of all ages.
Maybe you will find a little magic of your own when you read it!
Brady and Dot come home to find that they have a new refrigerator. It's kind of scary, they aren't used to things making noise when getting ice. They get brave enough to peek into the freezer and to their surprise they are attacked by a tiny Yeti! The Yeti goes by the name of Fraiser, and all he wants is to make the ice, and to be appreciated for making the ice.
They all come to an agreement that they will thank the Yeti and and he will continue to make the ice, and they will co-exist happily.
It's again a brightly illustrated book, I have a feeling this is going to be a theme with these two. All of the illustrations clearly and effectively display what is written on the page, so if you have a reader that is not really interested in the words, or wants to make up their own story with the pictures on the pages, they are easily visible and accessible.
The characters of Brady and Dot are both done well, and the confusion they have about the Yeti and the new refrigerator are both very easy to read in the illustrations as well as simply conveyed in the text of the story.
The story itself is very clever, taking the noise the ice machine makes and creating a sort of "urban legend" if you will about something living in the freezer. Its a neat idea that I think kids will really grasp on to, and it will also get their imaginative juices flowing. It kind of reminded me when I was a kid learning about record players (remember those kids?). I wanted to know how the sound came out, and my uncle decided to tell me there were tiny people living in them singing. Needless to say I was disappointed when I busted it open to free them, and found nothing inside.
The Bottom Line: A great kids book! If you find this in the store, pick it up! You and your kids will have a blast! The only reservation I have is that it uses the word "stupid" a lot. I'm not a big fan of that word when in the context of talking with kids. That's just me though, opinions will vary and you should let your own judgement decide. I still enjoyed it, and my kids enjoyed it. That was enough for me.
