The Lovereading4Kids comment
Get into the Spirit of Christmas! Nicola Killen’s story of a little girl’s magical adventure deserves a place in every Christmas stocking. Ollie is woken by jingling bells and dashes into the snow. Reindeers are clearly her special thing - she’s wearing her reindeer suit in bed, complete with antlers, and her favourite toy is a cuddly reindeer – so she can’t believe it when she meets a reindeer, looking for its lost collar (the source of the noise). Together they fly through the night sky across the sleeping world. Unusually, the illustrations are mostly greys and black, lit up by silver foil, splashes of red and touches of blue; deceptively simple they are full of warmth, and little Ollie is a very merry little character indeed. Special die-cut panels increase the fun, leading readers along with Ollie from one scene to the next. Delightful! ~ Andrea Reece
