Ohhhh...this is so much fun!
Looking for a book you can sit down with and read to your young one and it's just child-oriented humor and fun and delight? You got it right here.
And so it begins..... a young lad clad in a marvelous striped stocking cap is climbing up, up, up a hill pulling his sled and the plan for great adventure along with him. Unknown to the lad is the curious fox - love this fellow - just emerging from the pine forest and clearly wondering what is going on here...as are we.
And we're off....the sled tips over the peak of this hilltop/mountain and with a glorious leap into space, we are off on the sled ride of our lives. Instantly, a "cliffhanger" appears. (Sorry, couldn't resist that one.) A bunny - small, white, innocent bunny with a pink nose and ...well...you get the idea.... is sitting in the snow directly in our path.... and the path of the sled and the path of the boy ....and oh noooooooo.
Yep, it's a wild ride with one cliffhanger after another. Will they make it to the bottom? Keep your eye on the fox.
A wondrous tale of adventure in the wild, friends and friendship, the joy of taking a chance- delivering you to that place where you can watch the (nothing better than) widening eyes of the young one by your side as they catch on and the giggles start to come....
