The Red Sledge

By Mick Jackson

Illustrated by Victoria Ball

Mabel Taylor has a new red sledge. Just look at it! It has a rope for pulling it round and a shiny bottom to make it go extra-fast...

When Mabel Taylor receives a shiny red sledge for Christmas, she can't wait to try it out! But ... oh. No snow. No snow at all. And there's no snow the next day, either ... or the next. So, instead, Mabel imagines herself on the most extraordinary of adventures, becoming a bobsleigh champion, a polar explorer, and even Father Christmas! And just when she’s stopped waiting and watching for the snow to fall, her world is transformed by a thick blanket of brilliant white… Brimming over with the joy of imaginary and outdoor play, this is a timeless winter storybook penned by a Booker-shortlisted writer.
