May, Robert L. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Illustrated by Antonio Javier Caparo Little Simon, 2014. PICTURE BOOK $17.99 Content: G.
This is the original telling of a deer who was made fun of by his friends for having a bright red, shiny nose. Santa was having a particularly difficult time in the fog and came upon Rudolph and asked him for help so he could find his way to deliver the presents to the boys and girls. Rudolph was famous for helping Santa, and Santa still uses him whenever it gets foggy.
The illustrations are fantastic in this magical book—I especially loved Santa. The only weirdness is that Rudolph is illustrated sleeping in a house-all tucked into bed, but whatever. The fun rhyming story and the great pictures make this a fun addition to any Christmas collection.
