Icicle Flies (And Learns An Important Lesson) by R.W. Thompson revolves around Icicle, a young Emperor Penguin. Icicle wakes up one day after Christmas 2016 and sees that huge snowdrifts have formed because of the snowstorm the previous night. She wants to go out and play and her mother warns her to be careful and not to stray far. She meets her sister, Fluffy, and her friends on their way to the bay, and they invite Icicle to go with them for a swim. Icicle refuses to go with them and decides to go to the mountains instead. She wanders far away from home and forgets her mother’s warning. Will Icicle be able to find her way back home safely? Read the story to find out what happens to Icicle!

The story has an interesting concept and conveys a good message to young readers. Icicle’s character is adorable and relatable. The illustrations with the snow as the backdrop give the story a surreal vibe and they also breathe life into the story and characters. It is a good bedtime story as it teaches children to listen to their parents and do what they say. The story is good for read aloud sessions too in classrooms and school libraries. It is the second book in the series Icicle’s Adventures, and the story speak about the lessons that need to be learned. The author makes the lesson effective and interesting through the adventures of Icicle, and reaches out well to child readers with the message.
