Musher's Night Before Christmas (Night Before Christmas)by Tricia Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Eight champion huskies awaken one Christmas Eve night to Santa's sleigh full of goodies. But they aren't receiving presents yet. The man in red needs help with one final stop. Nome, Alaska, is last on the list and the heavy snow is not letting up. With Rudolph's nose out of power, someone else will have to guide this sleigh tonight.In the spirit of Alaska's state sport, this night before Christmas tale is all heart and determination. Nome has been saved by sled dogs before, so it is no coincidence that Santa chooses this pack of pups to brave the arctic weather. It took 150 canines to rush lifesaving serum to the town during the 1925 diphtheria epidemic. But with the blinding snow, the ice, and the overflow, can Santa rely on only eight? It's a tongue-flapping, tail-wagging adventure as this team tries to save Christmas for one deserving group.
Rudolph's nose light is worn out, and Nome, Alaska, the last stop on Santa's round-the-world delivery run, is shut down by a blizzard. Who will deliver the toys to the good children there? Santa remembers a grown-up boy named Tom, a dog musher who lives on the Iditarod Trail. Young readers will find out if Tom and his dog team can save Christmas this year.
A champion musher leads Santa's sleigh in a whiteout. It is Christmas Eve and Santa's on top of the world, but Rudolph's nose is out of juice. With only one stop left, they can't quit now. But how will they find their way to Nome, Alaska, with all the heavy snow? In order to deliver his last presents, Santa recruits a great musher and his eight champion huskies. Will this brave team be able to guide Santa's sleigh tonight?
