Prima-Vera, who is about to turn 15, is summoned to the Ice Floe Palace by her cousin, Queen Icy. The palace is filled with icicles, stalactites, snow, and ice. Everything is made of ice, even people?s hearts. The Queen, who plans to govern forever, wants to make winter last the whole year, but Vera, with the help of March Elf and August Elf, bravely confronts her. When the Queen offers her a birthday present, she chooses a very special fan: King Summer?s fan! This entertaining play is ideal for reading or staging. It provides an original and friendly means of teaching children that there is a time for each season, and that each one is wonderful and useful in its own way. This book was awarded the first prize in Spain?s Mª José Jove National Award for children?s theater.
