Picture Book Review: The Enchanted Sled

The Enchanted Sled (Creative Editions) (Creative Editions)

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.

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
