“Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers herself a Hoosier. Wyle's childhood ambition was to be the youngest ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to the goal at age 9.
Wyle is an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters.”
I read this with my eight-year-old granddaughter who I’ll refer to as the LBG. She’s at the top end of the target age group for this book, but ate it right up. We had a fun time reading it, laughing and vicariously having fun along with the girl and her dog as they explored the winter wonderland, playing and making fun discoveries. When we finished, I asked LBG what she though of the book and she gave a big thumbs up. I agreed.
