New Review-Wendy Nystrom's Sleigh Ride
Are you ready for another adventure? This is sure to be a hit! James finds his friends await him for a magical Yuletide trip, because the reindeer have been naughty and Santa needs a little help from the Icelandic Yule Lads. Those bad reindeer! You will sail off on a magic sleigh ride with Matthias the dragon leading the way with his friends to help him carry the sleigh! You will also get caught up in a very special rescue! And then after the special rescue they are off to Santa to save the day!
This is one of those books that just draws you in from the cover! I got to see the print edition a couple days ago. The way the cover just pops with that realistic sparkle. Ah! Its gorgeous. The words flow right into the illustrations and the story becomes a page turner! If your children love Christmas stories with fun, adventures, and more-this is the one to have arrive at your door! I love how Wendy writes for children to enjoy. She draws the adventure, adds a little mystery, and wraps it up with surprises and fun in a realistic way. This particular book is one I would pass down to my grandchildren, and will make a holiday tradition (like her other holiday book- Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland).
Don't forget to check out the first four adventures that James and Syvok embark on! And enjoy the newest holiday delight! I know my children couldn't wait to read it, and are still loving it! They are looking forward to sharing it with their teachers and friends this holiday season!
