This book is aimed at tweenagers and early teens and I think it would appeal very much to the Harry Potter audience as well. However much Hogwarts may have inspired Snowfields, the allure of the boarding school as a place of adventure and mystery has been around longer than Harry Potter, the world of Snowfields is very different Hogwarts. Klock has Snowfields and the White Christmas Organisation using a cunning blend of Christmas Magic alongside modern techno wizardry. As Arthur C Clarke said "A ...more

Take Hogwarts and replace it with another unique school, a railway station and the Hogwarts Express with, well, an equally fun way of transportation, 'Defence Against the Dark Arts' and 'Care of Magical Creatures' with more festive lessons, traditional wands with those a tad more modern and you have Fraud At Snowfields.

Whether a good thing or bad I suppose comparisons with the Harry Potter series were inevitable as Will finds himself at this rather unusual boarding school.

One of those books tha

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it and I love to get people into the holiday spirit. I found that Christmas feeling while reading Fraud At Snowfields. I absolutely loved reading this book! It put me right into the Christmas Spirit. It reminded me of the Christmas shows that are apart of the 25 days of Christmas but that is my thought :).

Will is asked to join a secret organization called The Whit

This book is aimed at a slightly younger reader than the usual YA books I read but nevertheless it was an enjoyable easy light read. I would definitely recommend it for tween (mid group) readers in particular.

I received an ARC for purposes of honest review. I did not complete the reading of the story.

The concept of a Christmas-y Hogwarts is intriguing and has potential to be delightfully British, but the treatment here is simply not compelling. It’s unfortunately realistic that the place is labeled “Snowfields, Official Training School of the Christmas Service, Part of the White Christmas Organization (WCO).” But all the imagination that could be there is just drained out by the very “told,” not “sho

Fraud at Snowfields is a great Christmas novel for tweenagers and teens. It’s full of Christmas magic and mystery. Imagine being invited to attend school where you are trained to assist Santa Claus himself! That would be so much fun! Will Burns receives the invitation and is amazed by all the wonders he sees at the school in Snowfields. What he doesn’t expect is the mystery and intrigue he ends up being involved in and the danger the conspiracy puts him in.

The author has a wonderful imagination
