PJ-Amazon customer. Heroes triumph by reading-what a great message for children! Additionally, John and Yukon uniquely demonstrate the value of sacrifice, friendship, and cooperation. -- CS Editor THE STORY: The forest near quaint little Pickit Town is stirring with an evil power. The Ice Queen has taken over the forest and is attempting to take over the world. One cold look or touch by this terrible Queen would instantly turn one into solid ice, and as the forest turns frozen and dark, all hope seems to be lost. Until Yukon, a wise gray wolf and his friend John Willing try to put a stop to this dreadful Queen with courage and an old book to help them. On their bone-chilling adventure, Yukon and John learn the importance of standing up against evil, and that an answer can always be found by flipping through the yellowed pages of a book.
Award Winning author, Liana-Melissa Allen has written and illustrated eight popular books for children and youth. She is a cartoonist, writer, and pianist. I love to create characters that range from the whimsical to the anamorphic goofballs, to the awesomely abnormal humans. I write and illustrate children's books including a picture book series for ages 5 to 10-year-olds called 'A Horse Valley Adventure'. MAX'S DAY AT SCHOOL is my latest and third book of the series. I also have a 'Horse Valley Toons' comic strip on my website that follows the comical adventures of my Horse Valley crew. Max, Jack, Lax, Donkey, Twiddle and Dwiddle which are sure to delight and amuse! Home is in Southern California with my two playful lutino budgies that are always willing to help me when I get stuck on a project. **Please visit my website at LMABOOKS.COM for more about my books, or to enjoy some jazz and classical piano, my cartoons, and also to download some of my Horse Valley Adventure characters for your young ones to color.
