First discovered asleep in the snow by the many gentle creatures who live deep in the forest, a very little boy with snow-white skin surprises his forest friends by waking up and working real magic! Everything he touches turns to frost, which is why the owls, the magpies, the unicorn, the woodhoppers, and all the other forest creatures name him Jack Frost. Then along come the goblins, who smell of boiled cabbage, make many rude noises, and love to tell lies. The goblins are jealous because they believe that the magic of the forest should be in their power--not in Jack Frost's. When they try to steal Jack's magic, they discover that he is a great deal more clever than they are! David Melling's enchanting full-color illustrations on every two-page spread are as filled with magic as the story he tells. Here is a wonderful picture storybook that offers a very appealing bedtime tale to kids.
