Frozen: A Sister More Like Me

by Barbara Jean Hicks, Brittney Lee (Illustrator)  

"Explore a wintery world of magic in Walt Disney Animation Studio's latest film, Frozen. This jacketed picture book features an original story about Anna and Elsa, the film's two sisters, as well as illustrations by one of the artists who worked on the film."


I really don't know what family of a small child isn't going through the Frozen craze. I think we heard Let it Go sung 100 times over the course of a month. Our daughter is Elsa crazy and a Frozen fan. We were lucky enough to find this book in Barnes & Noble. I say lucky because any product Frozen related is off the shelves and soon and it's put out. 

A Sister More Like Me is told from each sister POV, Anna and Elsa. One is messy and the other neat, one is elegant and the other breezy. With this in mind, we get a contrast of the two sisters on how they are different. More importantly, we learn (as they do) how the compliment each other. 

I also would like to note that the illustration is amazing! It could be easy for Disney to keep using the same images directly from the movie over and over and over again. I've seen it done too many times with other brands. Lucky for the reader and the parents reading the book the images stylized and beautiful. I loved the story but I really LOVED the illustration.

So, if you have a Frozen fan at home, make sure to check out the latest book offered from Disney!
