"CBS's traditional airing of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer scored 12.2 million viewers last week, beating out all other holiday fare of grinches, Santas, country carolers and tree lightings, Nielsen said." —Associated Press

Santa and his elves work here all year round, making toys for good girls and boys.
Janet Boyer
You will see all the great characters from the classic TV program (with the exception of the Burl Ives narrating snowman).
DONALD G. FOX
It is kind of a silly story with too many characters, but he does like to have it read to him.

My 4 year old watched the classic Rudolph movie, and immediately wanted a book of the movie that we could read together. I am glad it was available through Amazon. She enjoyed it immensely. There wasn't an overload of words which could lose most preschoolers, and the story is true to the movie. It's a cliff-note version of course, but your little Rudolph fan will enjoy it all the same.

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Hermey the elf are simple misfits in Santa's Christmastown. They set off together and manage to find others who also are unique individuals, e.g., Yukon Cornelius, the toys of the Island of Misfit Toys, and the Abominable Snowman ("Bumbles Bounce!"). You will see all the great characters from the classic TV program (with the exception of the Burl Ives narrating snowman). Sit back and read this little book to your favorite kids. It's a happy Christmas story of acceptance and love.

We just bought this today and I'm pleased with it. The book has thicker pages than just paper and it follows the story from the movie quite accurately. My three year old daughter just saw this movie for the first time and really enjoyed it so I'm guessing she will love this book when she opens it for Christmas.

Format: Paperback
"Way, way up at the cold, cold North Pole, there is a magical place called Christmastown. Santa and his elves work here all year round, making toys for good girls and boys. And one night not so long ago, something marvelous happened..." -- From the book

From Yukon Cornelius to the "humble bumble", Hermey the elf that wants to be a DEN-tist to Clarice the female doe, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has entertained millions throughout the years.

In this affordable paperback, the TV classic comes to life with brightly colored illustrations and easy-to-read text. If you're a fan of the TV classic and want to share the story with young ones--or are perhaps new to the story for some reason--Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is one of the most beloved, enduring holiday shows of all time!

-- Janet Boyer, author of The Back in Time Tarot Book

This is the story I grew up on. However the monster scares my son so we can't read it anymore.

This is a solid Christmas story and follows the movie pretty well. I just do not think the story translates well to a book. What makes this story great is the claymation special effects which makes the story one dimensional. I would suggest buying the DVDs from Amazon instead. Way more entertaining!
