About this Book:

It’s Christmas Eve! If Rudolph’s on the beach, who’s pulling the sleigh?!?

Another year, another Christmas Eve. This year, Rudolph just wants to enjoy the holiday without having to work. So he convinces Santa to accept a substitute. The search for the perfect replacement results in an eager and resourceful moose, who knows just how to use a headlamp and a GPS. But on Christmas Eve, Rudolph worries: Was the moose’s training complete? Will Santa and Moosey be able to get all the presents where they need to be?

Illustrator Russ Cox pairs with award-winning children's book author Lynn Plourde and her illustrious storytelling skills to tell this hilarious, unique holiday story that’s sure to be a perennial favorite.

Reviews

"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."
--Publishers Weekly

"Once again Winthrop author Lynn Plourde's whimsical imagination has come up with an original and funny children's story..." 
--Bill Bushnell, Kennebec Journal/Morning Sentinel

"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."
--School Library Journal
