Book Review| Flury: Journey of a Snowman by Tony Bertauski
Life hasn't been kind to Oliver Toye.
As if juvenile diabetes isn't enough, he’s forced to live with his tyrannical grandmother in a snow-bound house. He spends his days doing chores and the nights listening to the forest rumble.
But when he discovers the first leather-bound journal, the family secrets begin to surface. The mystery of his great-grandfather’s voyage to the North Pole is revealed. That’s when the snowman appears.
Magical and mysterious, the snowman will save Oliver more than once. But when the time comes for Oliver to discover the truth, will he have the courage? When Flury needs him, will he have the strength? When believing isn't enough, will he save the snowman from melting away?
Because sometimes even magic needs a little help.

I am sure you've all heard the song “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?” Well, the elven did build snowmen, waaayyy before they even heard the song. And they sure didn't use a carrot for a nose.
Wow! I have to say, Tony Bertauski outdid himself with this sequel. The sense of humor, mystery, and the love moving along the pages are simply wonderful. It was thoroughly absorbing; I didn't let go until I am done. The story, like the two books before it, can turn a reader into a believer of the impossible. I mean, I am not a huge fan of Scifi Fantasy, but I am totally dumbfounded by this one.
If you’re still wondering why people build snowmen in front of their houses…
…read this book!
