Mr B's review

Ash lives in Furi, a stronghold isolated in the middle of the dangerous Snow Sea. Setting off on the sleigh Frostheart to find his parents, Ash will be taken on a perilous journey where he will soon uncover that the key to their discovery may be the very thing he has been warned against. A fast-paced adventure rich with action, laughs and enchanting characters, not to mention Littler’s incredible illustrations which are scattered throughout.


The number one bestseller! Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2020.

Set off on a magical and hilarious adventure on the Frostheart!

Bursting with brilliant characters, heart-stopping adventure and tons of laughs, this magical tale is perfect for fans of Nevermoor, Frozen and How to Train Your Dragon!

Way out in the furthest part of the known world, a tiny stronghold exists all on its own, cut off from the rest of human-kin by monsters that lurk beneath the Snow Sea.

There, a boy called Ash waits for the return of his parents, singing a forbidden lullaby to remind him of them… and doing his best to avoid his very, VERY grumpy yeti guardian, Tobu.

But life is about to get a whole lot more crazy-adventurous for Ash.

When a brave rescue attempt reveals he has amazing magical powers, he’s whisked aboard the Frostheart, a sleigh packed full of daring explorers who could use his help. But can they help him find his family . . . ?

‘A feast for the eyes and the imagination!’ Laura Ellen Anderson, bestselling author of Amelia Fang

‘A rip-roaring action adventure, full of humour, heart and unforgettable characters, all enhanced by Littler’s wonderfully detailed black and white line drawings . . . expect big things.’ The Bookseller
