Description


​Do you hate to leave your dog at home when going off to do something fun?​ That’s how this Victorian-era family feels when they head out in the sleigh for a family gathering. Set in a snowy New England landscape, this picture book of woodcut-style illustrations will appeal to all with a nostalgia for bygone days or for whom it is an unknown world.

About the Author


The illustrator, Heather Bellanca & writer, Kim Spensley grew up next door to each other in an idyllic little town in Vermont, home of their forebears. As a result, they share a love of New England’s countryside, its bright winter days and its welcoming traditions. They share visions of great-great-grandparents traveling snow-covered roads for joyous, often rare and therefore cherished family gatherings.
