Jan 19, 2015 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This is a chapter book featuring Anna and Elsa and is set after events in the film, “Frozen.” It is the second book in what, I hope, will turn out to be a series. The first book was, “All Hail the Queen.” In this book, Anna is worried at Elsa always telling her to be careful. Why are her childhood memories all so foggy? She can’t seem to remember anything at all about Elsa’s magic? Anna is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and sets out to try to discover the truth about what happene ...more

Read this with my daughter. She's 4 and loves princesses, superheroes, magic, and adventure. This was filled with 3 out of 4. Despite it being a chapter book and slightly above my daughter's level, it kept her attention. We read a chapter at a time. the chapters weren't overly long which was great for her attention span, but long enough to help her relax before bed.

Frozen- you love the movie if you are about 6 and under. If you are 7 and older you hate it. I am older than 7. Not a great book in my opinion.

Memory and Magic is the second installment in the series of children's novellas titled Anna & Elsa, which, of course, is an extension of the Disney movie Frozen. In the Frozen universe, three years pass between Frozen and Frozen II with only the short movies Frozen Fever and Olaf's Frozen Adventure taking place in between, so it's fun for a Frozen fan like myself reading more adventures to find out more about some of what happened during those years. Memory and Magic is written by Erica David an ...more

This is such a good follow-up series to the Frozen movie. In the first book, Elsa learns how to balance using her powers and utilizing other methods to help the villagers with their problems. In this one, Anna deals with having had her memories of her sister's magic removed when she was a child.

I think one of the things that really draws me to this series is that when you watch a movie, you usually still have so many questions you want answered aft

Magic is everywhere you look.

This was a really cute children's story building up after the events of the Frozen movie. Anna is in search of the memories that the elder troll hide from her as a child, but as the story unfolds she learns some important life lessons ab out her relationship with her sister and the both of them are stronger for it.

It's a fast paced story that builds well and I think would be handled well by those who read it, it's not toned down intellectually, and calls things by w

The second instalment in this series of books. This book is more cohesive than the first one with a solid story that develops through the chapters. The topic of Anna's memories is interesting and I like the fact that the way that is treated here doesn't interfere with the canon from the movies. So, I hope they include this topic in the sequel as well.
I love the way the characters are in canon and the overall story and message are positive with a lot of sisterly love and friendship.

I read this to my five year old over three or four bedtime reading sessions. I was surprised by how well the book blended both a story easy for small children to enjoy with grown up emotional concepts like loss and regret. Secretly hoping she will pick out more from this series.

Berry and Dad finished this one together so I had to finish it on my own. Luckily, it read quickly. While I was disappointed in the memory storyline, the adventure was fun, as was hearing some of the shenanigans the young sisters got up to.

Not sure why this has great ratings. I thought it was pretty boring and had to persuade my 5 yo to hang on to the end. And she’s a huge frozen fan. Meh. Just not for us I guess.

This book was fun and addressed the fact that Anna lost her memories of Elsa's magic when they were children. I really liked how that was displayed for both Anna and Elsa before Anna realizes those memories were taken from her. It was believable and gave the book a more grown up air than the previous novel. Yet, I didn't believe that Anna would act so sweet and playful as she was trying to get real information from Kristoph then Elsa about her memories. If she was so serious about finding out wh ...more

In Memory and Magic, Anna begins to worry about her memory. She's just now realizing that she has very few memories of playing with her sister in their childhood, and, absolutely no memories of her sister having magic. She learns that Elsa and Kristoff both knew that the trolls took her memories or changed her memories. She wants those memories back! It doesn't seem fair that Elsa can remember things that she can't. Elsa supports Anna in her quest to get those memories back. Even if it means tru ...more

I'd wondered about Anna's memories when the movie ended. This book finally addresses the question of what Anna actually remembers and how she feels about the fact that her entire life was really a lie. You heard me, it was a LIE!

Seriously, it's a topic worth exploring, which Anna does, trying every crazy thing she can to remember. The process almost burns down the entire forest, but working together leads to a satisfying conclusion...somewhat. I actually kind of feel for the girl. Head trauma is

In this sequel to Frozen, Anna suffers from some sort of PTSD about having her memories wiped as a child. Unfortunately, since Elsa is ashamed and also suffering due to her almost killing her sister, the only answer available to Anna is to seek some wanna-be magic doctor who makes her dance around like a chicken to gain her memories. Does it work? I dunno you will have to read it to find out!

On a real note - I am finding it difficult to take these books seriously. I don't get the Frozen vibe fro

In Book 2, Anna realizes that she never really asked about her lost/removed memories. So, she goes to Brock the Troll to get them back. That doesn't work, and instead, he ends up starting a fire that takes everyone, including all the trolls, to put out.

In the end, Anna has to fill in all the magical details of Anna's memories that she says aloud.

I did not like this book as well as I did like A Warm Welcome (#3).
Still really enjoying this series. In this book, Anna is having trouble with her memory, trying to remember things from her childhood.

This book has everything good that the first book had. The characters are still true to their film counterparts. New minor characters are introduced and Anna and Elsa are still developing their sister relationship after having so much time apart. Very happy with this book.

Amazing story! The pictures were great and the story was easy to follow without being boring. There was a grammatical error but other than that the story was fantastic. Fans of Frozen will love it, and sisters can learn a lot about getting along and working together from this book. I would recommend it to any young child looking for an easy and fun chapter book to read.
