The Ice Queen by Liana-Melissa Allen is the whimsical tale of an Ice Queen who is evil and has taken over the beautiful forest of Pickit Town. Everything she touches or looks at turns to ice and the beautiful town of Pickit turns to gray, and nothing is peaceful and pleasant anymore. The wolves sense something is wrong and Yukon, a wise old gray wolf, warns everyone, including his friend, John Willing, who lives in the town. He runs to inform John about the Ice Queen and John invites Yukon to stay with him till the Ice Queen leaves. The Ice Queen informs John that, after taking over the forest, she intends to take over the world. Though she traps John in a huge web, he escapes with the help of Yukon and his wolf pack. Will they be able to save the beautiful forest of Pickit Town?
The story is filled with chills, thrills, adventure, mystery, and excitement and will keep children glued to the pages. What I like about the book is the messages of friendship, unity, and cooperation it conveys to young readers, encouraging them to develop their good points while growing up. The illustrations are fascinating and they capture the starkness and chill of the Ice Queen beautifully. The pictures also bring the story alive to readers. It is a good book for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries because of the messages, and the story is exciting for bedtime story-telling. The Ice Queen, wolves, spider webs, Infurious, the man-eating spider, and the illustrations make it a wonderful book for children.
