Sled Dogs Run

Overview

Whoosh! We take off, our sled nearly flying off the ground. Skookum and Hawk and Bamboo strain and huff, and we're running, racing over the soft white snow.

My sled dogs have been waiting for this day since they were puppies, and I have, too. Only the shusshh of the runners and the jingling of the collars and snaps disturb the quiet— until we meet a moose. I have to steer my dogs away from the danger, and their instincts have to lead me when I can't see. Mushing can be ...

Overview

Whoosh! We take off, our sled nearly flying off the ground. Skookum and Hawk and Bamboo strain and huff, and we're running, racing over the soft white snow.

My sled dogs have been waiting for this day since they were puppies, and I have, too. Only the shusshh of the runners and the jingling of the collars and snaps disturb the quiet— until we meet a moose. I have to steer my dogs away from the danger, and their instincts have to lead me when I can't see. Mushing can be dangerous, but there is nothing like the freedom and speed and peace that come from joining my sled dogs on a run.

Jonathan London's lyrical text and Jon Van Zyle's gorgeous landscapes portray the magic and beauty of a young girl's first solo run as a musher.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-This tale introduces children to the exciting sport of mushing. Narrated by the enthusiastic girl who will run the dogs, the story depicts the months of training that the canines must undergo in order to be ready to pull a sled. Three Siberian huskies are born in the spring. During the summer, they learn to wear harnesses and become accustomed to hauling logs. Finally, in the fall, they master the skill of working together to pull a cart with older, experienced dogs. Not until February are the dogs and their young driver ready to go on their first solo run. They work together well, and it is her trust in the team that helps the child reach home during a blinding snowstorm. The lyrical writing smoothly conveys information as well as the narrator's emotions. Illustrations done in acrylic on Masonite panels portray the snow-covered Alaskan countryside and the action. Endpapers identify implements used in dog sledding. Pair this offering with Pam Flowers's nonfiction title Big-Enough Anna (Alaska Northwest, 2003) for a Far North adventure.-Maryann H.
