Funny, heroic tale of a plucky orphan in Victorian London and a 10,000 year old mammoth, winning against the odds. They are an integral part of the story and really help us get to know our plucky Elsie and all her friends. New and familiar characters abound, voiced by a bright mix of performers, including Kat Dennings, Regé-Jean Page, Emma Corrin, Michael Sheen, Kristen Schaal, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Wright, and so many more, including fan-favorite narrators Simon Vance and Ray Porter. The Ice Monster is journey of discovery, an adventure tale so rich and detailed you can taste the chamber pots in the air.But the true wonderment of The Ice Monster is seeing Elsie discover that she is so very special, that through her dangerous and perilous journey she brings people together, giving people hope who have none and a sense of belonging to those who feel that they don’t belong. The addition of the few historical figures and settings eg: orphanages, the Chelsea Pensioners, the mention of Queen's Munshi would make the book also ideal for book clubs / classroom read that could help add, in Tony Ross’ artwork also adorns each and every page in the most remarkable of ways, his touches adding to the story telling of Walliams which make the work sing with an intrinsic beauty!

During May and June Alphabet Soup will be posting all the book reviews by those longlisted in our 2020 Book Reviewers’ Competition. The Ice Monster is an epic, loosely historical adventure (as explained in the back of the book, the dates don’t quite match up to historical facts but it’s more or less Victorian!

Sente empatia pelo Monstro que Veio do Gelo, pois acha que é como ela - um órfão sozinho no mundo - este aspeto tocou-me, pois ela é uma criança que não tem nada, não tem ninguém, seria de pensar que tivesse perdido a fé no mundo e nos outros, contudo ente uma ligação a este mamute, sente que são iguais e quer lutar por ele.In the beginning, the orphan life of ten-year-old Elsie was so emotional and I wished she was with her parents than in that cruel orphanage.
