No stranger to lakes, C.A. Strand grew up west of Lake Calhoun and east of Lake Minnetonka. The author also enjoys lake-based adventures north of Ely or east of Grand Marais whenever possible, and currently lives not too far from the water, 2,033 miles west by southwest of Chicagoland.
Creating the Stella Sky stories is the first time C.A. Strand has had the opportunity to write for kids, and the author sincerely hopes everyone at any age will enjoy meeting Stella, George and Freddy as much as Bettina Baxter did
When George falls into the frozen dungeon labyrinth below Snowy Hall, he finds himself lost in a freezing icy maze that might just be the end of him. Meanwhile, somewhere upstairs, Stella and Freddy are trying to get the whole shattered-magic-mirror confusion straightened out with the Ice Queen.
In a land that’s not even a land, but actually a huge iceberg floating somewhere out in the middle of Hudson Bay in northern Canada, Stella, George and Freddy are about to learn that it takes more than snowshoes and candy corn to get inside Snowy Hall to see the Ice Queen and apologize for breaking her magic mirror.
When Stella, George and Freddy point their whitewater river raft at Camp Edgar’s kid-crowded swimming beach, they just want to see if they can borrow some food and fuel for their trip north to Snowy Hall. But there’s nothing but trouble at this Canadian summer camp for bird-watching kids, and they’re about to land smack-dab in the middle of it.
When bad luck and even worse weather leave Stella Sky, George Thistlebaum and Freddy the ferret stranded at the Chainsaw Sisters’ isolated North Woods home, they have to take matters into their own hands—or paws—and find a way to escape.
