I still think Oliver and the Seawigs is my favorite of this series, but this one is a close second. Pugs! Yetis! A daring race across the frozen north! (Of course, the race was more like something seen in Wacky Races than the Iditarod.) It was fun and funny, but with a great message about friends...

I read this to my 6-year old who was captivated even though we did have to stop more than once to explain some of the words used. It is funny and sweet with a great message for kids. I want to read all of Reeve's books now!
