Parent Reaction:

Anyone who has seen Frosty the Snowman knows how this will end. "Revenge" seems a bit strong a children's book that is designed for a young audience. I would not read this with my toddler or preschooler. The illustrations are vivid and the snowman looks pretty menacing. This is not a book I'd read at bedtime.

Pros:

Readers who enjoy black humor - and wonder what goes through a snowman's mind - will enjoy this story.

Cons:

The snowman's anger is almost palpable. This is not a story that you would read as a bedtime story with kids prone to nightmares.
