Snowy is a tiny dwarf leading an almost normal life in the village of never-ending winter. Aside from the ever-dreary sky, living next to rowdy neighbors, and being treated like a child, nothing seems to pose a challenge.
All that changes when rumors about Snowy breaking a taboo spread. Disheartened at what he deemed betrayal and feeling stuck in his village, Snowy sneaks out to look for Originem, a village where misfortune befalls no one. However, the aftermath exceeds his wildest expectations.
Snowy finds himself in a magical world, suddenly dealing with the quaintest of things, from singing fruits and a wizard cat to dark woods (brimming with vicious beasts) and other villages locked in one season. But to reach his destination, Snowy, and his new friend, Kokoro, must first solve the mysteries surrounding the villages of everlasting seasons, as the secret that connects them may threaten their very existence.
Greetings you guys! Welcome to our review for Little Wanderers: The Everlasting Seasons. Do take note of the we in that sentence. Nope, I am not talking about the Royal We that basically only means me, we in this regard, meaning me and my Mommy. So watch out for her comments in between my enlightened review.
This was a fun adventurous story aimed at Middle Grade readers and kittens. This book will work well as a read-aloud too and the humor will make it enjoyable for Mommy as well. Snowy, our main character, is a very, very, very tiny little dwarf who lives in The Winter Village where winter lingers all year long. Except for his annoying, unpredictable and aimlessly wandering neighbors, nothing much happens and it’s quite obvious that something needs to change in his life.
As it goes in Small Towns and Villages, people and dwarfs who are aimless and bored, tend to start spreading rumors. When rumors start spreading about Snowy breaking a taboo, he is disheartened and ready to go on an adventure in search for the village of Originem and its hidden treasure, where everyone and everything lives in peace and harmony. Quite similar like cats and dogs. Who doesn’t want to live in a little village like that? Elza’s idea of the relationship between cats and dogs are slightly distorted.
Hi-ho, hi-ho and off to explore he goes. Snowy and and his new friend, Kokoro find themselves in a few magical worlds filled with talking cats, ruler cats, larger than dwarfs cats and a few other interesting characters. There really are a whole lot other characters than cats in this enchanting story. But the cats are really pretty cool.
No children’s book will be worth its weight in nibbles or dreams, if it doesn’t teach a lesson or two in between the pages. Snowy and Kokoro had to learn a few valuable lessons while trying to solve the mysteries and secrets of the Everlasting Seasons.
As most Fairytales go, it ends with everyone being happy and dancing in the streets. As most modern Fairytales go, the ending leaves room for many more Snowy and Kokoro adventures to come. Both me and my Mommy enjoyed this enchanting tale, but my Mommy has one small little thing that’s been nagging her from the get go. Literally, the ‘get go’. The cover…. Although it is a very cute and colorful cover, this cover will be appealing to early readers, but not as much to the target market of our Middle Grade Readers. It might just be me, though. Elza is making the suggestion of having a cat somewhere on the cover as well. Preferably a fluffy white one.
