Carlson’s promising novel Creatures of Snow is what looks like to be the first book of a series set in a world where different realms are separated by static filled trans-dimensional spaces known as the “snow.” This book drew me in quickly with compelling characters and skillful dialogue, as well as with mysterious characters that might or might not be the bad guys. 851 more words

Just when Bear is again about to fall asleep, Duck returns with a new idea to bake something. But Bear once again sends him on his way. When Duck comes in for a third time, Bear has had enough! The evening though has time for one final ironic twist by the end of the book, one that will get readers giggling. 169 more words
