Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Little Teeka thought she had to be firm with the reindeer to get them ready for Santa's important flight, but when her bossy yelling only got their antlers tangled up, she knew she had to try something different. "Beautifully conceived and finely wrought." — Booklist (starred review) "Brett's precise, glowing illustrations, drawing on Swedish folk art, make this a beguiling Advent calendar of a book." — Kirkus Reviews "AA? sweet Christmas fantasy that shows Brett at her best." — Publishers Weekly "This tale with its humorous close-ups of stubborn reindeer and a sharp child protagonist should prove popular at story hours." — School Library Journal

This has been one of my children's favorite christmas books for years! Brett's rich illustrations along the page borders provide a background story to the main story in which the main character finds she can only accomplish her goal through communication and cooperation. Ages 0 to 10.
