OVERRIDE

One-Dog Sleigh

Mary Casanova, illustrated by Ard Hoyt

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

I hitched up my pony to my little red sleigh. My dog pranced and danced. “I want to play!” “You bet,” I said, “just me and you in a one-dog sleigh.” Harness bells jing-jing-jingle under branches frosted white, but is there enough room for everyone when squirrel, owl, lynx, and other forest animals ask to play? On the ten-year anniversary of One-Dog Canoe, the author-illustrator team of Mary Casanova and Ard Hoyt have created a winter version of their popular picture book. Filled with lyrical text, bouncy rhythm, and whimsical illustrations, this is one heart-warming and adventurous sleigh ride you won’t want to miss. Bundle up and climb aboard!

REVIEWS

Praise for One-Dog Sleigh

"Children intrigued by the idea of a ride in a “one-horse open sleigh” will enjoy this humorous story of a girl and her dog experiencing an old-fashioned mode of winter transportation." -- Kirkus Reviews

 "This tale has plenty of repetition, action verbs, and onomatopoeia and is well suited for reading aloud. Emerging readers will also appreciate occasional rhymes, clear text in short sentences, and appealing illustrations full of picture clues." -- School Library Journal
