The 12 Sleighs of Christmas by Sherri Duskey Rinker & Jake Parker (Chronicle Books)

There’s nothing better than a new Christmas picture book and this one by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Jake Parker is set to be a future classic.

A jaunty festive rhyme with jam-packed illustrations makes for a supercharged Christmas story.

The countdown to Christmas has begun and with just two weeks to go until the big night, the elves discover that Santa’s sleigh isn’t up to the job.

But never fear, the elves are here and they have a master plan! With 12 teams ready and raring to create their own version of Santa’s iconic sleigh, they go about producing a new mode of transport for Santa.

Sherri Duskey Rinker‘s buoyant rhyme moves at a pace and takes the reader on a wildly imaginative journey, complete with turbo-boosted trains, power-popping planes and highly-accelerated automobiles of all shapes and sizes.

And who doesn’t love a roaring big-rig or a souped-up motorbike?

But which team will deliver the perfect replacement for Santa’s trusty sleigh?

Jake Parker‘s enthralling creations sprawl across bright and detailed spreads, with a bold and engaging illustrative style. This is one to be enjoyed on the run up to Christmas, year after year.
