Okay, here’s the thing: everyone knows what a phenomenon this movie has been.  Best grossing animated movie ever, multiple Academy Award winner, being made into a Broadway musical, an astounding cast (that rumor has it might reprise their roles on stage – if so, I will be among the first in line to buy tickets).

The movie more than lives up to its hype, and it was my privilege to be invited to write this early reader novelization.  It also was geek-out heaven for me; I got to see early screenings of the film (with some different songs!  And characters who were later cut!), some scenes of which were still in animatic form with scratch track actors.  Even then it was amazing.

Anna’s Icy Adventure re-tells the story from Anna’s point of view.  If your kid loved the movie, she/he will adore diving into this book and experiencing it in a new way.  I’m so thrilled for all its success, and I agree with the couple who won the Academy Award for all the movie’s music – bring on Frozen II!
