  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 November #2
    Ten on anything is never a good idea. In this case, 10 animals on a sled in the Arctic become 1 lonely caribou as one by one the riders' exits are described in alliterative action words: "Seal spilled out." "Hare hopped out." "Sheep shot out." The sled gains momentum, while the displaced animals are picked up by a giant snowball, which races alongside the sled. All 10 reach the bottom at the same time in a tame, anticlimactic ending only to leap on "for one more run / and a little more fun / in the moonlit land / of the midnight sun." Although it's not the most thrilling ride, children will enjoy the anticipation as each cartoon-style animal is booted off. The counting down as the sled goes along adds to the fun, while descending numbers and action verbs are emphasized with a colored font. Pair with Suzanne Williams' Ten Naughty Little Monkeys (2007) and Tedd Arnold's Five Ugly Monsters (1995) for more countdown fun. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
