Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this almost wordless picture book, a host of woodland creatures take a child's sled for a nighttime joy ride. Their whimsical ride is gorgeously depicted in bold watercolor, complemented by humorous expressions and pitch-perfect sound effects. With a timeless tone and classic characters, RED SLED will become a wintertime favorite.

Review:

"With a few well-chosen sound effects, a cozy winter landscape, and a group of enthusiastic, four-legged sledders, Judge (Strange Creatures: The Story of Walter Rothschild and His Museum) creates a story that's both cuddly and smartly paced. 'Scrunch scrinch scrunch scrinch scrunch scrinch' is just the noise a bear's padded paws might make walking across the snow as he nicks a red sled he finds leaning up against a house — he's intent on a little evening recreation. 'Gadung gadung gadung gadung' is the noise the sled makes as it courses, shuddering, down the hill under the combined weight of the bear, a moose, and a rabbit. 'Sssssffft' is the sound it makes as the three carve out a turn past a tree with a couple of curious raccoon pups and an opossum on it, then 'Whoa' as the spectators drop onto the crowded sled. Judge makes the animals fuzzy and well-padded without slipping into sentimentality. Her spreads are lucidly drafted, the action is easy to follow — peppy, but never frenetic — and the conclusion is both inevitable and satisfying. Ages 2 — 5. (Nov.)"
