Publisher's Summary

Life hasn't been kind to Oliver Toye.

As if juvenile diabetes wasn't enough, he's forced to live with his tyrannical grandmother at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in a snow-bound house. He spends his days doing chores and his nights listening to the forest rumble.

But he discovers a leather-bound journal, and family secrets surface. Like the mystery of his great-grandfather's voyage to the North Pole, when the snowman first appeared.

Oliver will need the snowman's magic, more than once. But when the time comes for Oliver to discover the truth, will he have the courage? If believing isn't enough, how will he save the snowman from melting away?

Sometimes even magic needs a little help.

    Story
    "Wonderful Christmas Story for All Ages!"
    Where does Flury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best ever and I've listened to more than 200 of them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is destined to be a classic, and not just for kids. I’m 68 years old and I thoroughly enjoyed it as did my son, his wife, and my four grandchildren ( We listened on long car ride to Thanksgiving family reunion. ) We all loved it!It had two bullies to dislike, an unhappy diabetic boy to love, a tyrannical Grandma who is much more than she appears to be, several “weird” mysteries to solve and, of course, a giant snowman! Just searched and found this author has two other Christmas books: Claus: Legend of the Fat Man and Jack: The Tale of Frost. I now know what's next on my "must listen" list and I've found the perfect Christmas present for the grand kids!


    What does James Killavey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent reading. Good voices. Good emotion when needed. First class. Glad to see the other two books are also read by him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I've leave that to the pros...hope they come up with a good one.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for an audio book the whole family will love, especially around Christmas time, this is the one. Really exceptional story and performance.

    "Wonderful book...Could not put it down."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A very big YES! I figured it would take me or week or so to finish this. That's what is normal for a 9 hr book. Wrong! I finished it in one day. Just could not stop listening. Listened while preparing for Thanksgiving, listened while taking a walk, listened while just sitting. No TV for me today! My husband was getting a little frustrated at my having ear buds in all day but..if I can convince him to listen to it, I'm sure he'll understand<br/><br/>This was one incredible book. And let me emphasize that this is not JUST a kids book. Although they will love it. This is that rare kind of book that everyone can enjoy and that will leave you with a smile that may last for days! I plan to make this a once a year listen. ( if I can wait that long. ) Merry Christmas to all! This sure got me in the spirit, even though it's Thanksgiving day as I write this.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to chose but really liked Oliver and Molly.


    Which character – as performed by James Killavey – was your favorite?

    Again...hard to choose. He did them all well. Really liked the voice of the Grandmother.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost did....with breaks...but still heard it all in one day.


    Any additional comments?

    Never wrote a review before and I don't usually gush but...WOW...This was fantastic.<br/>Just hate that's it's over.....On to check out the author's other books and hoping he uses the same narrator.

    "Terrific Story"
    Would you listen to Flury again? Why?

    Yes. Perfect winter story with a bit of everything...love, suspense, the supernatural, the unbelievable....but...you believe!


    What other book might you compare Flury to and why?

    Claus: Legend of the Fat Man....same author...and just as good.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many too list.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ditto


    Any additional comments?

    Probably the second best book I've ever listened too...and I've listened to hundreds.

    "GREAT story."
    What did you love best about Flury?

    Everything.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hard to say much about the actual story with being a "spoiler." Lets just say it was a wonderful story. Romance, the supernatural, a bit of positive philosophy...it had it all.


    Have you listened to any of James Killavey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great job. Loved the many voice


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Flury: Journey of a Snowman, sounds just fine.

    "Couldn't listen for longer than 20 mins"
    What disappointed you about Flury?

    Found the narrator very mechanical and just couldn't get into the story because of it

    "Nice twist of Christmas story"

    I liked to twist of the classic Santa story. I was kept entertained until the end. I would have been totally in grossed had I enjoyed the narrator's voice. His cadence rarely varied and the lift in his voice at the end of every sentence was annoying.
