Olive is a dog. But when she hears people singing "All of the other reindeer" in the song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," she begins to wonder. "Olive, the other reindeer?" She must be a reindeer, after all. She carefully puts down her scissors and holiday wrapping paper and marches out the door. Arriving at the North Pole, Olive is put right to work alongside the slightly bewildered but agreeable Dasher and Comet and the others, where she soon proves herself a surprising asset to the reindeer team. The delightfully silly antics of the earnest but confused canine make a perfect Christmas story for all ages. Now, with this gift set of J. otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh's hardcover book and the adorable plush pup herself, children will be able to act out the story, including the very best scene of all: Olive dangling happily beneath Santa's sleigh. The 8-inch white-and-brown Olive toy looks just like the doggy heroine in the book. She even has a loop on her back for the "flying" scene. Velcro-secured red antlers look as silly as can be, just as they should. Watch out, Rudolph. There may soon be competition for "the most famous reindeer of all."
