The Iciest, Diciest, Scariest Sled Ride Ever!

Three copies of The Iciest, Diciest, Scariest Sled Ride Ever! are listed for international giveaway over on Goodreads. It’s almost summertime here in Australia, and it’s never cold enough for sled rides anyway, but I can imagine this is the kind of book a lot of people are looking for over the holiday season.

What do seven kids do on a cold winter day when rain and sleet have created a thick crust of ice on top of the snow? It’s so slick and icy that sledding seems impossible—almost. Lizzie and her friends convince her grandfather to let them try to push his old-fashioned travis sled, a long, bench-like sled on runners, uphill so they can fly downhill, down the highest, mightiest, iciest sledding hill off Old Mountain Road. New Hampshire storyteller Rebecca Rule brings her trademark wry sense of New England humour to this delightful tale of a wild sled ride. Connecticut artist Jennifer Thermes’s beautiful watercolors are so full of motion, you’ll be holding on to your hats and scarves for this one.
