The Naughtiest Reindeer Takes a Bow
Allen & Unwin, 2017
32pp., hbk., RRP $A19.99
All the reindeer are fast asleep, tucked up in their beds resting before the big night ahead when their dreams are shattered by Ruby telling them it is time to get up! Except it’s not.
But she is determined to get a head start on the Christmas deliveries because she is tired of taking the blame for time running out and everyone getting anxious and stressed and so she takes off on her own…
Luckily when she runs out of puff, she crashes into George and Amelia’s home – they are familiar with her from her previous antics in The Naughtiest Reindeer and The Naughtiest Reindeer at the Zoo – but what are they to do with her when she is a day early? Easy – they take her to school!!! Oh dear!
The naughtiest reindeer has become a Christmas favourite of the Christmas Countdown and this new adventure is no different. It rollicks along with rhyme and illustrations each highlighting the chaos that only Ruby can cause! I know two little girls who will enjoy renewing their friendship with her before sharing this latest adventure this Christmas Eve.
