    Who wants to spend Christmas alone? Kurumi is used to it, but no

    Who wants to spend Christmas alone? Kurumi is used to it, but not because she wants to. Without a mom and a dad who works too much, Kurumi’s luck is about to change, if luck is what you want to call it. After an odd run-in with a guy while out walking, he informs her he is a reindeer and she is his Santa, destiny bringing them together with a simple binding of a rein. Doubting his story, he shows his animal form to Kurumi and results in an instant connection between the two.

    “You are Kato’s one and only Santa.”

    This is a traditional Japanese manga that reads right to left. This story is a wonderful blend of A Christmas Story meets serendipity. It is loving, heartfelt, and shows compassion, especially when the pair decides to help others. There is also a shorter story at the end called, Sweet Bite Mark, about a Vampire who finds out he has a young daughter. There are some mature topics throughout the book, but nothing too intense. I would still recommend this book for older teens and adults as well as all of Sakura Tsukuba’s book!

    Loved it!

    By the same manga artist who did Land of the Blindfolded and Penguin Revolution, both which I enjoyed very much. It is a sweet story with cute drawings which you can see in the sample. There is also a short vampire story included.
