Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee
A flawed hero, there’s nothing better. Ophelia’s limited by her asthma and a mind that won’t accept anything non scientific. The marvelous boy, hero number 2, is not only missing a name but also a finger. They are unlikely foes for the evil Snow Queen, who’s scheming to stop time and make the world frozen, in both gloom and ice! A great pick for monster lovers: there are Misery bird, magical swords and ghosts. Ages 8-12- boys and girls.
