Ski season is almost here — and Norwich author Rebecca Munsterer knows kids are just as pumped for it as adults are. Her new children's chapter book, The Little Rippers, is the first in a slopeside series about Max and Molly Beckett. Enrolled in a kids' ski class at the fictional Powderhound Mountain in Vermont, the brother and sister learn about friendship and teamwork when a blizzard sends the group down the wrong ski trail toward a mysterious snowmobiler. Young readers will enjoy this fast-paced mountain adventure, featuring moguls, black-diamond trails and the Sunday Funday ski race. Let it snow.
