More About the Author

Photo of the real Olive; pictured here on full Reindeer Alert.

Vivian Walsh's best selling book is, "Olive, the Other Reindeer" it is based on her real life Jack Russell Terrier. Olive is a relentlessly active, determined, well-loved, and sometimes confused lap dog. A description that is fairly shared with the author, and the dog's master, Vivian Walsh.

The goal of this particular author is to write exactly 100 books. Her next title will feature two of the larger creatures in the animal kingdom: a hippo and another hippo.

VW (as her friends call her) lives in sometimes sunny San Francisco with her many children.

My kids thought this book was both funny and cute.

Kids love this story and it has a nice message about how even when someone or something seems insignificant, they can be of great importance.

Cute, modern story about a dog named Olive who thinks he is "Olive the other reindeer" and thinks he should be up at the North Pole helping Santa. Story is short and innocent. This story is nothing like the video (see my separate review of that). There is no negativity in this book, no hurt feelings, no "bad guys", no threat of "no Christmas", (unlike the video). Olive saves the day: the problem is that there is a hole in Santa's sack and there are several times where toys or candy fell out of the sack and Olive helps retrieve them. A very happy little story. I recommend it for those looking for a cute, innocent modern story about Christmas. Illustrations are very unique and there is a lot going on in the illustrations. If you love the book, please preview the video before buying the video as the video is very different. If you disliked the video, give the book a chance as it is different in content and tone.

Olive, the Other Reindeer is a very funny Christmas story suitable for young and older children too. As an elementary school teacher, I picked out this book to read to my class, because it has so many interesting elements, from its computer illustrations to the many sound words it contains. It's a wonderful lesson on how individual differences can be an asset, and dog-lovers in particular will chuckle all the way through.

What a pleasure to read a children's book that's as fun for the adults as it is for the children. The writing is superb and the illustrations are mod and colorful; my children clamor for this book to be read to them year round.

My children and I found the book very enjoyable. I am not sure what book the person giving it one star (and said that it was too confusing) referred to because the book I read was about a dog who thinks it is a reindeer and goes to help Santa because that is what reindeers do. There is no mention of a postman or villian in the story and no reindeer are disabled. It is just a cute and straight-forward story of a dog that Santa allows to go along with him on Christmas Eve (along with all of his reindeer) and how that dog ends up being very helpful when then encounter some minor problems along the way. My children (4 & 7) loved the story, and I am sure that yours will too. It is cute, colorful, and heartwarming.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jason Kirkfield VINE VOICE on March 19, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A modern Christmas classic from the wife-and-husband team of Vivian Walsh and J. Otto Seibold. Spawning at least one sequel (Olive, My Love) and a movie as well, this is the original Olive.

The premise: an urban Jack Russell Terrier hears the song, "All of the other reindeer" but misinterprets it as, "Olive, the other reindeer" (her name of course). So she heads off to the North Pole. An agreeable Santa lets her pitch in, and although she cannot fly (even though she thinks she can), she ends up saving the day.

This then is a take-off on Rudolph, and it is brilliant from start to finish. Really nice production value from Chronicle Books, printed in Hong Kong. Just like Mel Tormé's "The Christmas Song" (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), this is too good to enjoy just once a year!

I love this book! It has a style and humor all it's own. The pictures are wonderfully cartoonish and child-like. The story is about a dog named Olive who hears a Christmas carrol on the radio and thinks it is about him. I won't spoil the rest for you! Enjoy!
