Red Sledge

Lita Judge

A little girl leaves her red sledge outside in the snow overnight – and first a bear, then a whole gaggle of animals, borrow it and enjoy slipping and sliding together down the hillside.

Not to be left out of the fun, the following night the girl joins them in their games.

This joyful story is told through the pictures, but a number of onomatopoeic words, such as ‘scrunch’, ‘scrinch’, ‘whoa’ and ‘eeeeeeeeeee‘ appear on the pages to provide a dramatic soundscape.
