And they're off! Who will win the Race to the Top of the World? Helga Hammerfest and her polar bears; bounder and cheat Sir Basil-Dumpling; Shackleton Jones with his robot-powered sled? But wait! What's this? Two kids riding a sled pulled by 66 pugs wearing jumpers?! The underdogs are coming!


I'm loving this book's sadness and happiness all in 1 book. Just as good as the others

it was a brilliant read, about a boy, Shen, a girl, Sika, and their sixty six pugs. True winter comes once in a lifetime, and Sika has heard many stories of them from her grandfather, when Shen's boat is trapped in the ice of the true winter, his captain abandons him with the sixty six pugs on the ice but he finds the village where Sika lives with her mother and grandfather. When true winter comes there is a race to the top of the world where the Snowfather lives and will grant the first person to the icicle palace's hearts desire, but who will win? i cant say anymore, but read it i recommend it for anyone. it is funny, sweet and adventureouse.

It was very funny and I really enjoyed this book , there were Sea monsters , hungry yetis , and to be pricise 266 pugs.It starts off as pugs on a ship and Captain Jeggings thinking she could sell the pugs. Shen loves the pugs and needs to save them from the flooding ship. Captain Jeggings jumps overboard and then Shen realises that... the dog food is still on board!!!Just that moment the ship collapses and Shen shivered because it was freezing and is shivering in fear. I recommend this book to ages 8+ because it is a very hard book to read.

it was good but kind of boring to be completely honest I like all of the sixty od pugs and glad she had a wish of her granddad meeting the ice king just before he died

I think it’s a good book because I thought that the pugs were so cute. It’s a fiction book about 66 pugs pulling a sleigh all the way to the North Pole and met a Kraken, Yetis and Snow Trolls. I would recommend this book to someone who likes pugs.

My favourite character was sika because she was really determined. It is a really lovely book it had good description and lovely pictures!I would recommend it to my sister i think she would really enjoy it. It interested me because the trolls and the yetis were really scary but it was interesting to know what happened next!!!!

I liked the pugs the best because they are so funny! I would recommend it to one of my friends because the illustrations are so cute and the text is so funny!

This is a fiction text. It was an amazing read because True Winter was an amazing thing to read about. I didn't think they would make it because of all the terrible things that happened along the way. It was a very exciting book to read. I really like Shen and Sika and the Snowfather because they showed such kindness and bravery.

Marshal Binky Ketchup 14.12.2019

It is a fiction. I liked the pugs best because they were cute. I think it is not factual because there were yetis,monsters and trolls. My worst person was Sir Basil because he cheated on the race to the top of the world. I would LOVE to recommend it to my friends.

It was an Adventurous, funny book!

Officer Bernice Vegas 02.09.2019

An excellent book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes fun and adventure. This army of pugs goes through many dangers of yetis, the Kraken and some thin pieces of ice. But thanks to them and their friends they manage to get to the snow father have their own wish. Apart from Sir Basil.
