Grade 2-4 This is a very modern Santa indeed. Finding his old sleigh rusty and his runners dented, and tired of the complaining reindeer who only want the mash advertised on TV, Santa decides to order a new helicopter with a custom paint job. His sleigh is donated to the children's museum, and the reindeer turned out to pasture. Santa quickly finds out that the helicopter doesn't fit the bill because of falling off of steep roofs, losing keys in the snow, and tradition-minded children. Somehow the pat story line just doesn't fly, with or without reindeer. Ambrus tries hard to create some interest with his cheery red drawings, but even here there is a lack of care evident. The text clearly reads, "Santa gave the sleigh bells to Joey and he fastened them to the door handle," yet the illustration shows the bells wrapped around the helicopter blades.
