written and illustrated by Maxine Sylvester
First I want to start by giving Maxine Sylvester praise for the great illustrations in this book. You can tell she is a gifted artist. It left me wanting to see more of her illustrations.
The story idea is great; a town where only reindeer live. Yes, the same reindeer that can become one of Santa’s team if their skills are good enough because Santa only takes the best of the best, kind of like the Navy Seals of reindeer.
The story focuses on Ronaldo, a little reindeer that lives in the town and goes to the Reindeer Flying Academy. The real message of the story is: “IMAGINE! See it, feel it, believe it! You can do anything if you truly believe in yourself.”
So, if you’re looking for a fun chapter book with an interesting story and great illustrations, this is the book for you.
There are other Ronaldo books as well. See links below.
