"Readers will enjoy being in on the silly problem-solving, and Cox’s art, often focused on Rudolph and the Moose’s big expressive eyes, gleefully plays into the story’s comical premise."
"Once again Winthrop author Lynn Plourde's whimsical imagination has come up with an original and funny children's story..."

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer really wants to take Christmas Eve off for once, and his kind boss Santa agrees, just so long as Rudolph finds and trains an acceptable substitute. After looking at several candidates, they choose a moose. Though he doesn't have such attributes as a shiny nose, the ability to fly, or a keen sense of navigation, he equips himself with a headlamp, jet pack, and GPS device and is ready to go. Too bad Santa and Rudolph forgot to teach the moose how to make a landing. The amiable story is enlivened by the illustrations of a broad-nosed and charismatic moose."
