PreS-Gr 2–Poor Santa has a terrible cold, and his daughter, a self-possessed young lady in a red polka-dot skirt, green tights, and black boots, decides that she will take over. Santa tells her the secret to getting the reindeer to fly but warns her to keep their harness tight, because they hate hauling the sleigh and will escape if they can. At first everything goes well, but sure enough, the harness loosens, and the reindeer fly off, stranding Jeannette on a roof. Not to worry. A chance encounter with a few homeless dogs and cats sparks her imagination, and before you can say “suffering snowballs,” she's got them harnessed to the sleigh, and her delivery schedule back on track. Latyk's digitally rendered illustrations have a slightly retro feel, reminiscent of the work of J. Otto Siebold. A fun holiday read-aloud with a resourceful young heroine.Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

Sure, the reindeer are tricky and none too fond of their work. But Jeannette was a Claus and it was Christmas. This was kind of her thing.      But when the sleigh is still more …
