Picture Book Review: The Enchanted Sled
The Enchanted Sled
Written by: Jan Wahl
Illustrated by: Monique Felix
Published by: Creative Editions, 2005
* I originally took this book out thinking that it was about sleigh riding. The author does takes the reader on a sledding adventure, though not in the traditional sense. In this story, told in rhyme, the narrator takes a sled ride past crystal castles, becomes a toad, and a gypsy, among many different things. After reading I asked the kids, "How did she do all those things?" where my son answered, "On her sled." When we flipped back to the opening pages I helped the kids see that she used her imagination. The pictures are beautifully illustrated and add to the dream-like feel of the book.
This book was borrowed from the library.
