This book made me cold. The icy description of the landscapes and the howls of the wind blowing through made it very chilly. Not to even mention the fact that Jack and Annie were wearing their wet bathing suits, talk about cold!

Jack kept mentioning the possibility of freezing to death if they didnt find warmer clothes, and as a kid you roll that off as an expression. But reading this as an older, more logical thinker, I began to realize how dangerous and awesome these magical adventures were.
