Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wanted to travel to the North Pole? See the Aurora Borealis up close and personal? Well, make sure you catch up to George and Jane, two disobedient children, who on December 11th, set out to do just that, finding adventure and a dragon on the way. E. Nesbit was a master at weaving imagination and real life into timeless fairy tales, with fantastic mythical creatures, princes and princesses, magic, and just the right touch of silliness. The Ice Dragon or Do as You Are Told is the fourth in a series of fairy tales with a common theme: dragons!

A cute kids story!

If you could sum up The Ice Dragon in three words, what would they be?

Cute Children's Fairytale

Who was your favorite character and why?

George! He is quite adventurous & sure they can be back before anyone is the wiser. Kids always know it all. He made me smile & think back to being a kids too!

What does Karen Krause bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Karen Krause tell s a story in a way to make children sit down and believe the story being told.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but I do believe the kids will love this tale, especially at the holidays!

Any additional comments?

Good job to both the author & the narrator! It is refreshing to hear a new story for kids over hearing one we have heard for the last 20 years!

Great book for kids!!

This is a fun adorable read for kids. I fondly recall reading these in much younger days and this was a happy revisit.

The story is a simple fantasy with plenty of fun elements. It is enchanting from beginning to end. I read this with my 6 year old niece, and she was enthralled! These are such lovely stories with rich characters and creative situations.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Karen Krause, who is delightful. She has a nice steady pace that moves with the story. I love her accent, it is like having your own British nanny to read to you! She was inventive and fun with the character voices. I imagine she would we just as wonderful in person at a children's story hour! I delight for my ears!
