Masterfully crafted by Sarah Hill, ‘Posie Pixie and the Snowstorm’ continues the hugely-popular ‘Whimsy Wood’ series with a tale that’s not only chilly and fun – but teaches young readers heaps about staying safe in cold conditions. It all plays out through Hill’s hallmark enchantment, with a cast of lovable characters that now includes Violet Vole and Sonny Shrew. It’s time to enter the wood…!
England, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/17/2015 -- In January of 2014, Sarah Hill first invited children into Whimsy Wood, the spellbinding setting for what is now a series of six enchanting yet educational books for curious young readers. Posie Pixie is their host, and Posie just loves to make new friends.
Winter has now fallen on Whimsy Wood and, in volume six of the series, all children are invited back into Posie's copper kettle house to learn vital safety tips for the snow and cold weather. Of course, it's all wrapped up with the innocent charm that has become a bold characteristic of Hill's style.
Synopsis of 'Posie Pixie and the Snowstorm':
It's January in Whimsy Wood and Posie Pixie's just made two new friends! Come and meet Violet Vole and her best friend Sonny Shrew (the coolest dude in Whimsy Wood!) in this enchanting tale of friendship and fun overcoming the elements!
Meet Sonny Shrew and Violet Vole as they slide the spout to Posie's Copper Kettle house (book 1) from the outside to the inside and then get snowed in when a storm blows through Whimsy Wood.
Inside Posie and her friends play hide-and-seek, build dens, toast marshmallows by the fire and drink acorn-cups of steaming sweet snowberry juice for starters.
"As the series progresses, Posie meets more wild and lovable characters, and introduces her readers to them all," explains Hill, a small animal vet. "The key to the series is that it's not just fun and entertaining, but hugely educational. Each volume comes with a vital life lesson that will resonate through an adventure where kids will just think they're having fun."
Continuing, "It's also forming a vital fundraising vehicle, too. 10% of all royalties for the entire series are being donated to the Wildlife Trusts, who care for and protect wildlife in woodland areas. Let's raise as much money as possible. With Posie by our side, we can do it!"
Readers agree, leaving a slew of positive reviews. Reading Recovery teacher, Jillian Gorra, comments,
"Readers are transported to Posie Pixie's delightful micro world of wonder and awe. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The ending leaves you wanting to know what Posie and her woodland friends will get up to next!"
Six-year-old Max adds, "Brilliant book! The snowball fight was so cool! I like Sonny Shrew as he wears shorts in winter, just like me!"
Briony writes, "Another perfect nature and fun-filled addition to the magical world of Whimsy Wood. We loved reading this book with its descriptive text. It's great that these books are educational as well as fun!"
