Read full description of the books:Well, THAT was weird. o.O But in a good way, I think. This is less of a horror story and more an adventure story, I'd say.
Jordan and Nicole Blake have never seen snow. They've spent their whole lives in sunny Pasadena, California. They try to imagine snow - but can't. Their father is a renowned photographer - and he's called off on assignment to track down an abominable snowman which has been spotted in Alaska. Since the kids' babysitter is not available, he's taking them with him.
Stunned and thrilled at the sight of snow, practical joker Jordan and know-it-all Nicole are having the time of their lives in the frozen North. Until Jordan falls into a crevasse. Until they have to hike 10 miles to the outpost abandoned cabin they're staying at. Until their truculent and near-mute guide takes off with the dog, the sled, and the equipment, leaving them stranded.
Until they find a remote cave where a giant, ferocious-looking abominable snowman stands - encased in ice...
This book is fun. Two tanned, blonde California kids are like fish out of water in the frigid snow covered fields of Alaska. Add a mysterious abominable snowman to the mix, and well - you're in for a ride - that's for sure!
This book is rather nutty and takes some twists you don't expect, but this didn't annoy me. Instead it felt like a fun adventure, a wild romp. Everyone - the characters, the readers - are having a great time.
(view spoiler)[The snowman breaks out of the ice. He is like a heat-generating machine. And he loves trail mix! The kids report him to their dad, and when they get back to the cave, Snowman is frozen in ice again. Dad has the brilliant idea to bring Snowman back to California. The kids think this is terrible. But there's no reasoning with him - money, money, money!
Back in CA, the kids can't resist telling their friend Lauren about the snowman. They packed a few snowballs in with Snowman, too! They can't wait to pelt Lauren with snow in the California heat! But when Nicole's throw goes wide and hits a tree - the whole tree becomes frozen and snow covered!!!!
"Jordan -" Nicole said quietly. "This isn't right. We should have left the snow in the cave. It isn't normal snow."
Yeah, no shit, Sherlock! Their slow-on-the-uptake friend Lauren hits Nicole with a snowball - and she turns into a popsicle! The kids frantically try to warm her up, but nothing works. In a panic, Jordan revives Snowman with tempting trail mix. His incredible body heat thaws Nicole out as he gives her a huge bear hug! Then he runs away to live in the wilds of California!
But in the final twist, the evil Miller twins (Kyle and Kara) find the last two remaining snowballs, and Kyle throws the snowball in Kara's face. Dum dum DUM! (hide spoiler)]
Tl;dr - A fun adventure story. Ice, cold, snow, and glaciers on one side - sun, sand, chlorine, and palm trees on the other!
P.S. The children have divorced parents. I don't think I've seen that before in a Goosebumps novel.
