Emily Rodda has written many books for children, including Finders Keepers, which School Library journal dubbed "a lively adventure," and several novels about the likable hero Rowan. The first of these novels, Rowan of Rin, won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year for Younger Readers Award when it was first published. In fact, Emily Rodda has won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award an unprecedented five times. A former editor, Ms. Rodda is also the best-selling author of adult mysteries under the name Jennifer Rowe. She lives in Australia.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-The fifth book featuring Rowan of Rin is a gripping adventure with danger at every turn. Although Rowan's challenges and dangers have been great in the past, readers will sense the gravity of this quest from the start. The cover art is dominated by three fierce, giant, spiny flat worms covered with ice whose large mouths are filled with rows of sharp, curved teeth. Discovering why these Ice Creepers have begun to descend from the mountain and what has led to the harshest winter the villagers can remember is at the center of this fast-paced adventure. As in previous stories, Rowan and his party must decipher Sheba the witch's riddles; here, the riddles, rhymes, and visions appear to him in waking dreams that are both exhausting and terrifying. Once again, through his courage and perseverance, the protagonist completes his tasks and Rin is safe. This spellbinding adventure will be welcomed by readers of the previous books, who will enjoy Rowan's continued growth as the "hero of Rin." Some background information is provided, but the story does not stand as firmly on its own as it does within the series.
