Ice-Out returns to the Prohibition-era borderland of Mary Casanova’s beloved novel Frozen, and to the characters who made it a favorite among readers of all ages. Inspired by real events in early 1920s Minnesota, it is a story of young romance against terrible odds and true grit on the border between license and responsibility, rich and poor, and right and wrong.
"A historical novel that makes the past as fresh and compelling as the present,Ice-Out is a story of dreams, determination, loyalty, and the greys that infuse black and white issues. Mary Casanova has created a hero we cheer for as he struggles to surmount obstacles placed before him by the times, by place, and by his own choices." —Lorna Landvik, author of Best to Laugh and Mayor of the Universe
About Wake Up, Island:
Conjuring the morning life around a cabin fragrant with berry pancakes, this timeless book wakens the child in every reader to the wonders of nature that greet every new day in the charmed world of a northern woodland island.
"With simple statements and delicate woodcuts, Wake up, Island creates a vivid sense of an island coming to life on a beautiful morning. Each page is a unique work of art. Even the text stretches and dips along with the fauna and flora of the island." —Foreword Reviews
