Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Those are tired of watching the video of this made-for-TV 1964 classic, or who want a seasonally appropriate bedtime story to share, may want to reach for this book instead. Although simplified to accommodate the board book format, the text roughly follows the storyline of the familiar Rankin-Bass production. A reindeer is born in spring and named Rudolph. When his father’s efforts to conceal Rudolph’s unusual glowing nose fail, the young buck is teased by the other reindeer and runs away. He meets an elf named Hermey, who would rather be a dentist than a toymaker, and an explorer named Yukon Cornelius. They encounter the Abominable Snow Monster and journey to the Land of Misfit Toys before Rudolph decides to return to his village. There, he finds out that his parents and prospective girlfriend Clarice have gone to look for him. Rudolph finds them in peril, captured by the Abominable Snow Monster; but thanks to some quick-thinking friends, all’s well that ends well. A return to the village secures Rudolph’s legendary status when he saves Christmas. Readers will seek this book not so much as a new story but as another opportunity to immerse themselves in a beloved tale. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green; Ages 2 to 6.
