Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
Moe Price's simple but effective humor is the perfect tone for this tongue-in-cheek telling of Santa's first sleigh and the search for the proper "livestock" to pull it. Morozumi's illustrations lend a lovely holiday atmosphere without gooey sugar coating to glop up this funny Christmas "tail."

Without a doubt, Morozumi's illustrations are the most beautiful we have seen. The story tells of Santa's decision to use reindeer instead of other animals to make his deliveries. Read this book to see how they were chosen. This continues to be a favorite in our household.

I read this book to my first grade class. It really got them involved and wanting to know more. They were so engaged! I suggest this book to anyone who has young children! It tells all about how the reindeer came to be the ones to pull Santa's sleigh!

This is a nice story about why Santa has reindeer. It's well-written and a kind tale. The book itself is good quality. A nice addition to any book collection.

HASH(0x96c42a2c) out of 5 stars Excellent book - make it part of your christmas tradition Jan. 9 2011

After you have laid out the cookies and milk for Santa, ignite the magic by reading this classic story with your children or grandchildren. A truly special story that restores all belief.

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!!

The art is beautiful, framible even. This review is for the illustrations. I didn't have time to read the book. I had ordered it to replace a lost library book. I had to flip through it to check its condition before turning it over to the librarian. It looked like the story itself was cute. The librarian commented that she thought it was a good story.
