I think this is a great book. I like this book because the illustrations are very easy to know what they mean. In the story, Stanley's brother Arthur sprained his ankle and the illustration shows his ankle is like a bubble. I like the authorís writing style because he added lots of details. In the story the author adds little details in the beginning or end of every sentence. One of them is when Stanley was being Nickís snowboard and the author was adding extra details like they were both swooshing through the snow and gliding in the air. I have a personal connection because of when I went skiing. The part of the story that is about skiing and snowboarding is in the beginning, Stanley and his brother are there skiing and Nick is snowboarding.
I recommend this book to people that like expeditions. One reason why is because Stanley in this book goes on a very snowy expedition. Also in the story Nick and Stanley enter a snowboarding championship. If you are interested in this book you can ask your parents for a couple of dollars and ask for a ride to the bookstore.
