Christmas is just around the corner. The sleigh is polished. The toys are wrapped. The lists are all checked (twice). Everything's right on schedule -- until Santa finds all eight reindeer in bed with the flu. Uh-oh! How can Santa deliver presents without the reindeer?
In this hilarious follow-up to Santa's New Suit, Laura Rader once again treats readers to a fresh and funny look at beloved Christmas traditions.

PreS-Gr. 1. When Santa's reindeer come down with terrible colds, the Christmas Eve flight looks iffy. Santa tries replacement animals and a homemade blimp, but nothing works until Mrs. Claus's comforting cocoa (recipe appended) cures the sniffling deer. The ending may sound less than convincing, but Rader has already set the stage and warmed up her audience for laughs, not logic, with amusing pictures of animals auditioning for the reindeers' job: ducks cavorting in tutus, monkeys with wings strapped on, and an elephant held aloft by a dozen balloons. The cartoon-like ink drawings, washed with cheerful colors, include a energetic cast of elves and animals making observations and sometimes comical comments as the story rolls along. Good fun for the Santa set. Carolyn Phelan
