      “Mr. Icy Cold and Other Stories” is a book of Enid Blyton’s children stories. There are thirteen short stories contained in the entire book, and all of them focus on enchanting plots which appeal to young children’s imaginations. I think it would make for a great Christmas gift for a child of eight years and a little younger, as I remember getting it as a Christmas present. The stories are a great way of encouraging young children to read.

      The stories contained in this book are “Mr. Icy Cold”, “The Left-Behind Cat”, “Chinky Goes Adventuring”, “The Noah’s Ark Lion”, “The Funny Little Hedgehog”, “The Little Green Imp”, “The Magic Rubber,” “Oh, Simple Simon!”, “The Tale of the Goldfish,” “Winkle Makes a Mistake”, “What a Surprise!”, “The Cow that Lost Her Moo” and “Miss Mary Ann Mouse.”

      The first story “Mr. Icy Cold” is written in simple English which I think would be


      easy for a child to understand. The sentences are short, and the story is beautifully illustrated even though the pictures are not in color.

      The story is about three children who make the perfect snowman who they call “Mr. Icy Cold.” Mr. Icy Cold comes to life in the night as soon as some snow elves are passing by. He tells them his name and they tell him what they are and of the icy land far away where they come from. The snow elves return the next night and are bitter because two naught pixies have ruined their sleigh. The snowman then goes to talk to the pixies about it and frighten the pixies into repairing the snow elves’ sleigh. The pixies end up repairing the sleigh, however the snow elves grow sad again as the time begins to get warmer and Mr. Icy Cold is in danger of ...


      • melting. The snow elves then come up with the idea to take Mr. Icy Cold back to their land where it is always ice and snow.

        In the end, the three children who made Mr. Icy Cold are surprised to find him gone. When their mother suggests that he must have melted, the three children are still skeptical as they have realized that the clothes he was wearing are gone too. One of the best parts of the storu as well is that there is a small picture of Mr. Icy Cold looking happy and satisfied while posing against an igloo.

        The second story is “The Left-Behind Cat”. This story is about a family who has gone on vacation by the seaside and has left their cat, Tabby alone at home. Tabby does not know they have gone until she does not see them for two days. She goes in

        search of food, but only finds an old bone, a crust of bread and is only able to drink water in a goldfish pond before a dog chases her away. Tabby gets a very ill and nearly starves to death until she is found and taken home by a redhead boy named Sandy. Sandy and his mother nurse her back to health. Sandy’s mother asked the local policeman if he had known anyone who lost a cat, but since he didn’t Sandy was able to keep Tabby. Tabby’s owners then arrived back home and found their cat missing. After asking their neighbor, she told them that she had seen the cat looking ill and hungry and that it must surely be dead.

        The other stories are just as interesting and easy to read as “Mr. Icy Cold” and The Left-Behind Cat”. In fact, I think I will read the book again later.
