Synopsis

Stowaway in a Sleigh by Roger Mader

The cat's out of the bag and holiday adventure awaits! When Slipper finds Mr. Furry Boots in her house, she does what any cat would do and investigates. But curiosity gets the best of her when she finds herself on a trip she hadn't planned on taking . . . Join Slipper as she discovers that there's no place like home--especially for Christmas.

Reviews

This is a trip readers will want to take again and again. --BookPage * The succinct, perfectly paced text makes every carefully chosen word count. This stowaway is here to stay as a new Christmas classic. --Kirkus, STARRED review Mader excels at capturing the skulking movements of a curious cat, and his pastels exude a glowing warmth and softness: Slipper's fur, Santa's boots, and the fluffy snow all look real enough to touch. It's a sweet, understated Christmas adventure that hums with the holiday magic that unfolds while children are nestled snug in their beds. --Publishers Weekly ...lush, atmospheric pastel illustrations capture the endearing protagonist's feline nature and mannerisms. --Horn Book * The succinct, perfectly paced text makes every carefully chosen word count.
