Chapter One

Snow Way

Three kids drop out of the sky and into a snowbank.

"Hmm, snow," Joe says.

His friend Sam shivers.

"You forgot to mention the ice."

Fred smiles.

"Maybe it's a ski resort," he says.

"I hear voices."

"Yeah," Sam agrees.

"They're saying 'Fred is an idiot.'"

Joe, Sam, and Fred hike up the nearest hill.

All they can see is icy water, icy snow, and icy ice.

Suddenly the hill starts to shake.

"Was that an earthquake?" Sam asks.

"Maybe Fred just burped,"

Joe says.


Their icy hill breaks loose and floats out to sea. . . .

"We're doomed!" Sam yells.

This story is a really fun read for beginning readers. It is loaded with fun pictures and tiny snidbits of information covering each page. Resembling that of a comic book or cartoon, the big easy to read words will instantly intrigue the reader. The story is split into small chapters, has modern age-appropriate lingo, and great humor, making it fun to read and easy to get through.
