With his white fur and mountain of antlers, Inger is a standout in the reindeer herd, so it's no surprise that he is chosen to pull the wedding sled and to run in the Alta River Race.

But when Inger twice disappoints his fans, everyone begins to agree with Old Moss: Inger just isn't trustworthy. Will Inger get a third chance to prove that the can be counted upon?

It takes a surprise spring snowstorm, a raging river, and a hungry wolf to set the stage for Inger's comeback. And this time- with three reindeer at risk- Inger sticks by his word.

Author Jami Parkison's story is set among traditional Sami reindeer herders in the Arctic region of Norway. It is a difficult life in a landscape full of peril, where keeping a promise can be a matter of life and death.

Against this backdrop of ice and snow, illustrator Andra Chase depicts the colorful Sami people and their antlered companions at Spring Festival in the town of Kautokeino and on the sometimes treacherous route of their annual migration to summer pastures.

This is an exciting tale of accepting challenges and earning trust. Children will love Inger and his story. You can count on it!
