Frost Bites

Frost Bites (Nodessy Adventures #2) by Charles Ogden

Reading level: Ages 9-12

Although I was not familiar with these books before last week, most children under the age of 12 know Edgar and Ellen from their animated television series. Ogden – who is mysteriously missing in action - has cleverly written a series of books about these michevious twins and their adventures in the town of Nod’s Limbs. The Nodessy Adventures is the second series featuring the twins.

In this book, Edgar and Ellen are in pursuit of their nemesis, Stephanie Knightleigh, who leads them to Frøsthaven, an Arctic village whose cheerful citizens and strange customs remind them of home.

Also, there are clues embedded in this book that will lead the reader closer to the missing author of this series.

Sounds like a fun book, Bobbi. I'll have to remember the title for my grandson. Thanks for letting me know about the book review in the Library notes in the Mercer paper. I appreciate your kind words about my book, The Outsider.
