The classic story about how Jack Frost came to be called Jack Frost, written and illustrated by David Melling, bestselling creator of the Hugless Douglas series.
There was once a group of trees who were fed up with living in a deep, dark and crowded valley - so they moved to the enchanted forest. But as everybody knows, trees cannot walk without magic. This is the story of how Jack, the small boy with the frozen touch, wanders in to the forest and ends up saving the magic from the greedy goblins outside. An exquisitely illustrated and beautifully told story.
