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 humor to this delightful tale of a wild sled ride. Connecticut artist Jennifer Thermes beautiful wa- tercolors are so full of motion, you ll be holding on to your hats and scarves for this one!
