Jingle-jingle by Nicola Smee

It's snowing and the barnyard is filled with excitement at the prospect of a sleigh ride with Mr Horse. Cat and Dog and Pig and Duck are all ready to go -- but Mr Horse wants to ride in the sleigh too! Get ready for a seasonal ride that every toddler will want to join again and again! Follow-up to Clip-Clop, which was shortlisted for the City of Discovery Picture Book Award. 'With each page, the easy and brilliant partnership of text and illustration successfully conveys sound, movement, and the animals' exhilaration.' -- School Library Journal 'The repeated phrases, carefully judged pace, brief suspense, and happy mayhem make an enticing mixture for very young audiences.' -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
