Shh!

Have you ever heard a reindeer's sleigh bells in the sky on Christmas Eve?

Have you ever heard a reindeer's hoofbeat on the roof of your house?

Or listened to the clatter of antlers outside in the darkness?

Of course you haven't!

Santa's reindeer are so skillful that they can fly in and out of your neighborhood without anyone hearing a thing. But how do they learn to fly in the first place?

What are the reindeer really like?

What do the reindeer do for the rest of the year when they're not flying Santa around the world?

Find out all about how Santa and his Sleigh Master train the Sleigh Team at the North Pole.

Discover just what reindeer games the team likes to play and what they love to eat. Learn everything you ever wanted to know in this beautifully illustrated look at the North Pole's most magical inhabitants.

Then watch out on Christmas Eve.

Once you know all about Santa's reindeer, you just might be able to spot them stopping somewhere near your house!

Synopsis:

A companion to the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Santa Claus," this book is filled with everything about the North Poles most magical creatures. This beautifully packaged volume includes flaps and foldouts, as well as a reindeer training manual and a diploma certifying readers as a stable elf. Full color.

Gold Gato, December 20, 2011 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Finally, a book that explains the magical world of Santa's flying reindeer. The whole Rudolph saga always had me wondering about these elite flyers and why they were originally so rigid about that blaring red nose. Well, now I know. Along with learning about the eating habits and basic skill tests for the furry team, the reader also gets to learn the origins and personality of the current reindeer team.

While a reindeer team member actually has its own given name, once they officially join the Christmas Sled, they assume the names we all know so well, which means that Donner, for instance, doesn't live forever, as he is actually replaced each year with a new Donner. The name origins are fun...Blitzen means 'lightning' in German, so that reindeer is always the fastest one on the team. Prancer is the moniker reserved for the most nimble and agile of the sled pullers.

The book layout is fun for both child and adult, with little intricacies such as a built in pocket manual for reindeer training reminders ("always keep some lichen biscuits in a pocket as a reward"). Most wonderful of all is a diploma which can be awarded to the child who has read and memorized the magical workings of our beloved holiday reindeer. Yup, this book is a real treat, can't replicate it electronically.

Book Season = Winter (of course)
