Ready for the dog days of summer to be over? Get a glimpse of a wintery wonderland as we reveal the cover of A Sled for Gabo, which will be simultaneously published in a Spanish edition, Un trineo para Gabo, translated by Alexis Romay, on Jan. 5, 2021. Author Emma Otheguy’s charming tale of a boy experiencing snow for the first time features illustrations by Ana Ramírez González.
Here’s how the book’s publisher, Atheneum, describes the story:
On the day it snows, Gabo sees kids tugging sleds up the hill, then coasting down, whooping all the while. Gabo wishes he could join them, but his hat is too small and he doesn’t have boots or a sled. But he does have warm and welcoming neighbors in his new town who help him solve the problem in the sweetest way possible! The Snowy Day meets Last Stop on Market Street in this heartwarming classic in the making about a young Latinx boy who is new in town and doesn’t have much, but with the help of a loving community discovers the joys of his first snowy day.
