If this book doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy, then you need to read it again, it is just the cutest book I have seen in a long, long time. I am a sucker for anything Christmas or Christmas time related, and Ronaldo by Maxine Sylvester fits the bill. Ronaldo is a sweet reindeer who just wants to be on Santa’s flying team. When he makes top flying cadet at the reindeer flying academy, his dreams of being like his idol Vixen are about to come true.
That is unless Dasher has anything to say about it. Dasher is the bully of the reindeer academy, but Ronaldo isn’t going to let some mean reindeer crush his dreams. Along side his best friend Rudy (yep that’s the one), Ronaldo takes to the sky.
This book is pure brilliance. I love the pictures that are incorporated along with the chapter book style story. It’s quirky, cute, and fun just in time for the Christmas season, though you can read it any time of year. This is just the first installment of Ronaldo’s adventure, I can’t wait to see what he gets up to next. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, it’s funny and clever, thank you to the author for sending me this book.
