New Review from DSJM Reviews

Many thanks to Jetana at DS&JM Reviews for a recent review of Snowman Amuck. A great review site, check them out:

"Snowman Amuck was written and illustrated by Cindy Samul. The illustrations are very colorful to draw kids’ attention but also muted to fit with the winter setting. It looks like a comic book in the way it is laid out and my kids absolutely love it! I have a 3 and a 4 year old, so getting both of them to sit and look at the same book from beginning to end is a challenge sometimes but we didn’t have any issues with that when we read Snowman Amuck. This is the first story by Cindy that we have read, although it surely won’t be the last. My kids and I will look forward to seeing what adventures Samul’s characters go on- both past and future!"

5 Star Readers' Favorite Review for Snowman Amuck

Readers' Favorite is one of the largest book review and award contest sites on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and have received the "Best Websites for Authors" and "Honoring Excellence" awards from the Association of Independent Authors.

Review: "The story is a wee bit scary, as well as humorous, and children will love the twist at the end. The illustrations are charming and the snowman looks quite scary and evil. Jack and Ally are lovable characters and their portrayal is real and relatable. It is an excellent bedtime storytelling book and can be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries, especially during the Christmas season and winter. I like the comic format of the book; it is not only appealing but also gives a good look and feel, and it is different from other children’s storybooks. The story reveals the fun angle when the snowman comes to life and this makes it an entertaining story for children."
