PreSchool-Grade 1–Little Red returns, along with her friends Little Blue, Roany the Pony, and Gino the Dog. Their expedition to Christmas Tree Wood is interrupted when they encounter Santa Claus with a sick reindeer. Little Red saves the day by sprinkling magic dust on Roany so that he can fly and help to pull the sleigh. Young children may be drawn to the cutesy illustrations, but the treacly story is far from compelling. The overly long narrative is sprinkled with such awkward neologisms as "yippeedoodledan" and "fantabuloso." This is only for the most avid Anglophiles or hard-core fans of the Duchess of York.–V. W.
