" I so enjoyed this sweet story and was lucky enough to be able to do so while hunkered down inside during a blizzard, which undoubtedly added to my enjoyment. " said.

" This is the kind of book I have been searching for ever since I heard my first Danish nisse story. Love it! " said.

" A cute story of the magic of the season. I enjoyed learning and life a folklore in Denmark. I did not find this as enjoyable as I would have had I been like 8. " said.

" As an adult, I found this story lovely and charming, but I had a little trouble convincing my children. My 7 year old daughter loved the book at first, but became mired down in the last third of the story. My 9 and 11 year old boys were intrigued initially but lost interest in the long, descriptive passages. " said.

" I picked this up because the story kicks off with some Danish people and their Christmas rice pudding. And hey, that's a thing that my part Danish family does! But it's not really what the story is about. It's more a story family, so even if your family doesn't get rice pudding at Christmas, you'll still probably enjoy this. " 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.
