Sir Licksalot & The Artic Fools
Author: D. L. Carroll
Illustrations: Teri Cuneo
What do you get when you combine great characters, a magic fountain, and a quirky dog? You get a fun filled chapter book to engage readers from page one. Sir Licksalot & The Artic Fools is just such a story. It is one of a series of books about a dog named Sir Licksalot and the kids who own him.
The adventures start at the magic fountain. The beginning of summer vacation starts out boring but soon a cold trip to the artic region takes place when they visit the fountain during a campout and find themselves dripping in freezing water and ice crystals. From trying to keep Sir Licksalot warm to finding magical dog sleds and ice sculptures followed by polar bears and seals the fun and excitement continues.
Besides page turning action, realistic characters, and a strong setting, D. L. Carroll adds a mix of facts about Global warming, artic climate, and natural habitats. From glacier caves to icicles the reader will not only be engaged and entertained but will learn cool things about science and the environment. Teachers and parents will definitely approve and kids will be none the wiser because they will be enjoying a good read.
