Review: At the Back of the North Wind

User Review  - Tony Paulson - Goodreads

This was a pleasant enough story with interesting and entertaining characters and a few poignant ideas. I found some of the fantastical parts a little challenging to enjoy but stuck it out to the end and found the ending rewarding. This is probably a nice book to read children ages 6-10.
