The illustrations are beautiful, and the verse I do not consider lengthy at all. Such rich vocabulary and quirky similes are often overlooked in modern children's books. My favorite line is: "And Santa was right, as he usually is. The fog was as thick as a soda's white fizz."
Money well spent.
Rudolph lives in a reindeer village (not the North Pole, as you probably expect); he is made fun of by his peers because of his bright, red nose, is shy and lonesome and very, very sad. Like any good reindeer, Rudolph obeyed his parents and was hopeful that Santa would treat him the same as he treated the others. Meanwhile, Santa is facing terrible weather conditions and isn't sure he will be able to see through this Christmas Eve fog. Santa begins his journey, moving slowly and carefully, until he reaches the place where the deer live. There, he is amazed to find Rudolph's room well-lit. He is even more amazed when he finds out why it's well-lit! Santa asks Rudolph to help him through the remainder of the night, which Rudolph does. As Christmas dawn breaks, they return to Rudolph's home where he is hailed as a hero and Santa asks Rudolph to promise to serve "On future dark trips, as COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF!"
Many Rudolph fans will actually find themselves surprised that the book is a bit different than the movie and the song - did you know, for example, that the book starts, and ends, with almost the exact same words as Clement C. Moore's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas? Really, you just can't call yourself a fan without ever reading the original. The illustrations, by Denver Gillen, are the originals, as well. Even though newer depictions are great, nothing compares to these.Read more ›
Who doesn't know The Red-Nosed Rudolph? Santa Claus' brave little helper, spirited and dedicated. His story is a moving one, it pulls on your heart strings and reminds you to always believe in yourself and to never stop trying. Rudolph story is a true classic, filled with magic and Christmas spirit. It fills your heart with joy and warmth, it excites and entertains, and it teaches us that dreams really do come true!
This gorgeous 75th Anniversary Edition feels and looks like a pricey collectors item, in that it's really magnificently designed, embellished with golden accents on the cover and dust jacket, and printed on a high quality glossy paper. It's completely fantastic and it makes for a perfect Christmas gift.
Caparo's illustrations are beyond enchanting and mesmerizing. They are so rich in details, so full of life, so heartfelt and captivating, you find yourself staring at them completely awestruck and spell-bound. They are simply beautiful and I can't tell you how much I love them. Combined with May's timeless, heartwarming story, they create something truly special and worth cherishing.
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer is a story I will be reading to and with my daughter every year around Christmas time. We will make big steaming mugs of hot-chocolate, we'll grab a plate of home-baked cookies and a warm blanket, and we'll cozy up against each other and get swept away into the world of magic, Santa Claus, sparkling snow, shining stars and presents. And Rudolph will be our guide.
Although the story is original with Robert L. May in 1939, the illustrations were created by David Wenzel in 2001. This combination is my favorite of all the Rudolph books.
The book is over-sized, for one. I have the paperback version, which is 9" x 11". The hardback is slightly larger. This larger size makes it easier for children in a school setting to see the illustrations.
Another reason this book is a winner is the color and quality of the illustrations. The reindeer are soft and cuddly looking (even though they call Rudolph names just for having that freaky red nose--so they think). To counteract all the brown of the reindeer, Wenzel splashes a deep, lovely blue around the scene. Even though he is made fun of, Rudolph tries to keep a good attitude. He know he's been good and leaves Santa cookies and cocoa and goes to bed.
Meanwhile Santa is back at the Pole, totally worried about the weather. The fog is so bad the deer have a hard time seeing and almost collide with a huge plane. By the time Santa gets to Rudolph's house, it is pitch dark. But in Rudolph's room, Santa can see and discovers the answer to his prayers--A reindeer with a guiding light. Rudolph is delighted to help.
Of course, at the end, the other reindeer cheer him for being such a help. They are proud to be his friends.
The moral: You CAN be different! It is OK!
Everyone has a talent. When you discover it, don't be shy about using it.
Overall, a great addition to every reading home!
