" Bettina is left in charge of the farm when her parents are called away. When her baby sister disappears Bettina must turn to the nisse, tiny creatures who live nearby, for help. " said.

" Cute little middle grade book. :) " said.

" Such a delightful book! I can't wait to book talk this book at school. Great magic! " said.

"This was a wonderful companion to Gnomes, and it brought me right back to my childhood Christmases, when we would leave rice pudding out for Jul Tomte on Christmas Eve in hopes of finding our shoes full of (chocolate) gold coins in the morning. I know that this would have been a perfectly magical book to me if I had read it as a child. As part of a heavily Swedish/Norwegian family, this is the folklore I grew up with. So, three stars for being a super cozy and nostalgic read for my holiday break.

However, this certainly wasn't the best quality kid's novel I've read. The plot was plodding and predictable, the characters somewhat poorly developed, and the author's voice was prosaic. But, with such well developed folklore, I still found this an enjoyable read.
" said.

" I loved reading this book and immersing myself in a different world of nisse! I had to google how to pronounce nisse and what they were, but once I did I learned a lot about my Finnish heritage that I didn’t know before (and some things I did know and the nisse emphasized). I’m glad to have been able to connect to my heritage and learn something new in such a fun way. " said.

" 5 Stars for "Winterfrost" written by author Michelle Houts is a book I found hard to put down. Readers, ages 8-12, will love the descriptive writing, characters, and scenery.What should of been a normal Danish Christmas for Bettina and her baby sister, a turn of events takes them on many twists and turns in this lovely tale.I hope to see "Winterfrost" as a film in the future.Beautiful story Michelle Houts.(I received a hardcover copy of this book at our local library.) " said.

" I thought this book was an adorable fun read about a Nisse/Tomten, Nisse family, a young girl and her baby sister. It was a fun magical read. Nisse are little house gnomes that in Scandinavian tradition take care of the animals and house but you never see them. Humans are supposed to leave them porridge but what happens when you don’t? Well Bettina found out what happens when you don’t in this book. I think it’s a fun cute read for wintertime. It’s a chapter book for 4th - 7th grade. " said.

" A beautiful, atmospheric and charming tale steeped in the mythos of Denmark. A lovely read for children at Christmas or winter. Surprisingly moving at times, and serious about things such as redemption, responsibility, and wisdom. Filled with imagery of wintry Denmark, its woods and customs and smells. Told from the heart of a child. Wondrous. I completely loved it and already have plans to buy it for children in my life. " said.
