While millions of parents turn to “The Snowman” and “A Christmas Carol” to keep their children entertained during the holidays, both readers and critics are currently crying out for a wholly-unique, modern new Christmas classic to enter the marketplace. Thankfully, Florida’s K. Mobley has stepped up to the plate with gusto.
“It’s Christmas time: The Magic of Snowville” is both a thrilling story and a manifesto of vital life lessons, leading children on a snowy adventure that will remind them exactly what Christmas is really all about.
This story takes place on a distant planet, far beyond our galaxy. Two brothers, Sinclair and Ivan Frost, are faced with a difficult challenge that may jeopardize Christmas and Sinclair’s duties as the Giver of Snowville – a special power given to their family nearly a century ago by the Star Queen. Meanwhile, Sinclair’s best friend, Randall, and the citizens of Snowville struggle to keep it all together.
“I believe that, in the humdrum of modern society, we don’t spend enough time helping children remember and embrace the true meaning of the holidays,” explains Mobley, whose book actually started life as a song. “If we want to get this message across, we need to do it with a story that will appeal to the modern-day child. Therefore, I decided to set my story in a technology-rich world far in the future. It’s the perfect formula!”
Continuing, “The overriding message in the book is one of forgiveness and family. I also hope that the book’s setting will open children’s minds up to the power and boundless opportunities provided by science. The initial response has been overwhelming, and I’m thrilled to have put a book like this on the market.”
Readers agree, leaving a string of positive reviews. Lit Amri of Readers’ Favorite comments, “It’s Christmas Time entertains, teaches and inspires good values to children, a great magical read that would absolutely delight young readers and adults alike. It actually makes me look forward to Christmas even more. All in all, this is a commendable children’s book from Mobley, and is perfectly complemented by Anthony Jackson’s illustrations. Hopefully Mobley and Jackson will produce another holiday themed story.”

Sinclair Frost is hip and savvy storyline make it ideal for readers who are just past their primers and looking to get into reading on a more advanced level. It’s Christmas Time: The Magic of Snowville is highly recommended.”
