12 Sleighs of Christmas | Little Lit Book Series

Sherri Rinker dreams up a new take on an old tradition and takes us along for the ride.

With just two weeks before Christmas, the elves are making their rounds and it turns out that Santa’s sleigh is wrecked! His elves scramble to begin repairs until a mechanic comes up with a brilliant idea to hold a build-off. A dozen teams get to work on designing and constructing their versions of the ultimate sleigh. They put in hours of holiday hustle and elbow grease and come up with innovative, cutting-edge transports including a mountain-sized big rig that flies, a floating ship with fifty sails and a slick motorcycle sleigh—but who knows what Santa will choose. Jake Parker’s lively, festive and lighthearted illustrations are a perfect match for Sherri Rinker’s delightful, rich language and spirited rhymes.
