One winter morning, Mr. Magee and his little dog, Dee, head out bright and early to learn how to ski. But what begins as a pleasant day in the snow quickly goes downhill when a run-in with a curious moose sends them flying through the air and hanging a hundred feet above an abyss!


"The pacing of both verse and shiny, retro illustrations excels, and Mr. Magee couldn't hope to find a prettier landscape to fall down in."
~ Kirkus

"The gouache illustrations are clean, crisp, and colorful. Various shades of blue, green, and purple nicely show the chill of the winter day. The rhyming text scans easily. Fans of Mr. Magee will feel at home with this one."
~ School Library Journal

"The text is adrenalizing, the pictures even more so. A delightful winter read and pure fun for skiers, skiers-to-be, non-skiers and everyone in-between. Two mitten-clad thumbs up!"
~ The Children's Book Review
