Review: What an adorable sequel I loved stepping back into this world, having another adventure with Aziza, this time it’s Christmas but not in shimmertown and it’s all snowed over and no one can find the magical cat that has caused frosty havoc to all that live there.

Aziza, Peri, Tiki and the gigglers all work together to find the sorcer and solve the mystery and save simmerrown from the frost.

It was such a fun book, I was trying to solve it with them and it was great meeting so many new characters within the book too. It was such an amazing read. I highly recommend this book.
