Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Land of Icy Darkness and the Land of the Flaming Sun. In this energy-charged tale about how the weather was made, King Icicle tries to challenge the radiance of Queen Goldenlight as he struggles to dominate the earth. But an important lesson of balance and compromise emerges from the storm, and the king and queen agree to work together to establish the rotating seasons of winter and summer.

Children will love Mary Lister's multi-layered story, featuring a hilarious cast of characters, including Danny Drizzle and Harry Hurricane, with valuable messages all the way through. Learn an important lesson about balance and acceptance in this exciting tale about how people learn to share the earth, and how the rotating seasons of winter and summer are born.

What the Critics Say

"This whimsical tale of the birth of the seasons is a great read-aloud. It is full of expressive language and the good versus evil that young children love to hear....Highly recommended." (Library Media Connection)

    "The effort involved is not proportional to outcome"
    Would you try another book from Mary Lister and/or Ellen Verenieks?

    From a book store, but not from Audible.


    Has Winter King, Summer Queen turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ellen Verenieks’s performances?

    If I could ever hear one I may know the answer to this question.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I haven't gotten to see or hear the book yet. I look forward to the opportunity.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book program was a huge time sucker. It doesn't work.
