Marigny DupuyReindeer are as familiar in Christmas iconography as angels, stars and Santa, but most people know little about how this came to be. A master storyteller, Geraldine McCaughrean, best known for artful retellings of myths and folk tales, suggests an explanation in this charming Christmas story...With a nod to Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories, a dash of creation myth and bits of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, McCaughrean, a Carnegie Medal winner, has created an original, satisfying tale that should become part of the holiday lexicon. Heather Holland's vibrant, folk-art- style watercolors -- from large winter landscapes to small windows of visual story -- are delightful.
