Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The fearless leader of Santa's sleigh was a character created by Robert L. May in his book, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, in 1939 as part of a giveaway from Montgomery Ward. Though the text, which gives a nod to Clement C. Moore, is somewhat forced, the book gets a boost from David Wenzel's illustrations of a warm, appealing Santa. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
A board book abridged from Robert L. May's original story, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, illus. by David Wenzel, allows youngest Rudolph fans to join in the fun. PW said of the original, "The text, which gives a nod to Clement C. Moore, gets a boost from David Wenzel's illustrations of a warm, appealing Santa." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-This newly illustrated edition of the well-known story uses May's original, lengthy but satisfying rhymed text, written in 1939. Wenzel's watercolor illustrations are vibrant and richly detailed with a nostalgic, old-fashioned quality. Michael Emberley's watercolor, cartoonlike pen-and-ink drawings in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Applewood, 1994) are amusing but crowd the pages. Of the two books, Wenzel's illustrations are a better fit for the text. While a tad too long for storytime, it's a solid representation of the tale.-M. W. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    A Holiday Delight!

    I had no idea the original Rudolph story was written in rhyme! Where has this been all my life? This book is delightful and beautifully illustrated! A wonderful companion to "The Night Before Christmas"!

    Not worth the money.

    No pictures no way to record. Just a wordprocessed copy of the original book. I do not recommend this ripoff!

    How do you review a classic? It¿s not easy but I must admit that

    How do you review a classic? It’s not easy but I must admit that it was a lot of fun to read the tale of Rudolph as it was originally written.

    We all know the story of Rudolph, how the other reindeer teased him because of his bright red nose, how he ran away, and then how he came back and saved Christmas. In the original version, a poem written by Robert May, Rudolph is actually living with other reindeer, far from Santa’s home in the North Pole. Like all the other animals, and girls and boys, on Christmas Eve, Rudolph is fast asleep, dreaming of the toys Santa will bring. But Santa is having trouble delivering his gifts because a terrible fog has settled into the land. What will happen if he can’t get to all the houses? Santa is in a panic and he doesn’t know what to do, but then he comes upon the house where Rudolph and his friends live. Perhaps that bright red nose… There is, of course, a happy ending, Rudolph saves the day, all the toys are distributed, and Christmas is saved.

    Applewood Books is a publishing company that has brought many classics back to life to be enjoyed by new generations of readers. For Rudolph, they have kept the look of the original 1939 publication by using the same text, design, illustrations, and even typeface. The delightful feel of the original is kept and while reading, it becomes clear why this story has become a cherished part of every Christmas. Don’t miss it!

    Quill says: Every home should have a copy of this book to enjoy at Christmas!

    Classic Rudolph

    Most of us grown ups have watched the " made for TV " Rudolph story. This tale has a different twist then what we are used to. This is the original Rudolph story and it is not as catchy ( in terms of pop culture, kid friendly ) as the story most of us are familiar with. However, it is classic writing from a previous time, so we enjoyed the book anyway. But my 5 year old boy relates to the story that came out in the late '60's more.

    The illustrations are beautiful and they are the best part of the book.
