The Ice Monster

by David Walliams (Author) Tony Ross (Illustrator)

The Ice Monster
Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade

Hailed as "the heir to Roald Dahl" by The Spectator, the UK's #1 bestselling children's author, David Walliams, will have fans of Jeff Kinney and Rachel Renee Russell in stitches!

David Walliams burst on to the American scene with his New York Times bestseller Demon Dentist, and now he's bringing his signature humor to this story of a ten-year-old orphan and a 10,000-year-old mammoth.

When Elsie, an orphan on the streets of Victorian London, hears about the mysterious Ice Monster--a woolly mammoth found at the North Pole--she's determined to discover more....

Luckily, a chance encounter brings Elsie face to face with the creature, sparking the adventure of a lifetime--from London to the heart of the Arctic!

School Library Journal

Dahl-esque in the extreme...Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome.
