By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Winterfrost - Michelle Houts

This was my own nomination for my category, mostly because I myself wanted to read it. It’s quite a nice story. Bettina’s parents have gone off to visit relatives, leaving her in charge of her little sister. But in the confusion, they forgot to put out the rice pudding for the farm’s nisse, and the nisse isn’t happy. This would be a great one for the child that grew up with the Tomten’s Farm picture books, or anyone who likes a slightly old-fashioned story.
