About the Author


Ellen Bryan Obed grew up on a six-acre farm in Waterville, Maine, where she and her siblings waited for the first ice as most children wait for summer or Christmas or a birthday. 
     Ellen now lives with her husband in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. There they experience many kinds of ice coming each winter to area streams, lakes, and ponds, and to the nearby Piscataquis River.

Praise for Twelve Kinds of Ice…


"Evocative and at the same time marvelously real, this is as much about expectation and the warmth to be found in family and friends as it is about cold ice . . . Everyone will find this a small gem."
Booklist, starred review

"Irresistible."
Kirkus, starred review

"This is a celebration of play, of winter, and of imagination . . . in an icy collection whose overarching quality is warmth."
Horn Book

"Like a souvenir from a bygone era . . . Today's readers will marvel at the old-fashioned amusements, chronicled with folksy charm."
Publishers Weekly, starred review
