From Kirkus Reviews
A charming story explaining how Santa got his sleigh (his elves made it when delivering presents on foot became overwhelming) and why reindeer pull it (because Santa once used his sleigh to rescue an injured reindeer), graced by both pathos and humor (a succession of unsuitable animals apply for the job of sleigh- pulling: e.g., an elephant--too heavy; a team of huskies--afraid of heights). Watercolors in a palette of antique red, forest green, and rich browns are brimming with busy elves, appealing animals, and old-fashioned toys (unfortunately, important elements of a few spreads are lost in the gutter). A satisfyingly large, handsome addition to the Christmas shelf. (Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Our children received this book as a Christmas gift when it was first released and it continues to be part of our Christmas tradition to read it every year...the illustrations are stunning and the story is unique and intriguing and I think a true classic.
I recently purchased another copy for my nieces and nephew (triplets) so this could become part of their christmas tradition.
I highly recommend this book - the illustrations will capture the children's attention while you read it to them and as they age they will enjoy taking on the story themselves to read for you!!
