Rambunctious reindeer have a lot to learn before Santa's big night!

Teeka has an important job training the reindeer in time for their Christmas Eve ride. The animals are spirited and mischievous, but kindness wins the day just in time.

For two decades, readers have loved this classic Christmas story, which was one of the first children's books to hit the New York Times bestseller list. Now, this beautiful 20th anniversary edition, with a foil cover and a heartfelt note from Jan herself, makes a perfect introduction for new fans to this cherished yuletide story.

Featuring the wintry northern setting and the border illustrations that have become a hallmark of Jan's work, readers will love watching Teeka's humorous attempts to control the reindeer and their energetic antics.

Another great Brett book! Will Teeka be able to train the reindeer before Christmas Eve? She has something to learn too! As always the sidebar illustrations are fun- these count down to Christmas !!!!!

I have loved the illustrations in this since I was little. Probably my favourite of Jan Brett's work and definately one of my favourite illustrated books, seasonal or no. Its so much fun reading into the stories that are illustrated into the margins and borders of each page. Beautiful work.
