9780863150913: Ollie's Ski Trip

Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall, he sets off on an adventure by himself to the palace of King Winter.

Along the way, he meets Jack Frost, who makes everything sparkle, and Mrs. Thaw, who makes everything melt. At the palace, Ollie meets children helping to make Christmas presents―that is, until breaktime, when they rush outside for a big snowball fight.

Finally, Mrs. Thaw gets her way, and the lovely snow starts to disappear. Ollie is very upset and wishes it could be winter forever―until Spring arrives one lovely day when in her carriage, pulled by butterflies.

A new mini edition of this popular book is now available for small hands.

(Ages 3-5)

About the Author:

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm, was a pioneering author and illustrator of children's books in Sweden―perhaps the best known of all Swedish children's book artists. Her books were inspired by her own childhood experiences, as well as those of her six children. Central themes were the relationships between children and adults and children's independent initiative. Her books are continually reprinted, and many have become classics. She also illustrated ABC books and songbooks for Swedish schools.

Review:

'Ollie has an adventure in the snowy forest on his skis meeting Jack Frost and King Winter, who shows Ollie his Ice Palace where all the Christmas presents are made. Ollie plays on his toboggan until Mrs Thaw comes with her broom, to sweep away the snow and make way for Spring, on her chariot pulled by butterflies. A beautiful, seasonal tale suitable for 3-7 year olds.' -- Hilary Woolf with Isaac, age 4, Education Otherwise, December 2004
