A superb, well rounded children's story! A cheeky little reindeer gets herself into all kinds of fun, mischief, heroism, and makes several new friends. These friends are all in their own right, unique, and made me chuckle. She learns many lessons along the way. The story had a solid, winding, plot which surprises you at each turn. With developed and enjoyable characters, fun details, and pleasing dialogue, I would recommend it to adults and kids alike. It was spectaculous, hippity-hoppity worthy and heart warming.

I received a complimentary PDF copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.
Fawn quickly meets some new friends, and along the way they pick up some valuable lessons. The themes of Loyalty, friendship, and teamwork feature proximately throughout the well-told saga. Some of the escapades are humorous, but all of them provide a magical way for fawn and her new friends to grow by testing their endurance and cognitive skills.
There are sketches scattered throughout the book that add interest and give form to some of the characters whose exploits are integral to the uplifting narrative. ‘Til the Last Snowflake Falls is the first book in a lengthy fantasy trilogy that is sure to capture the imagination of your young readers. It would make a cherished gift for your child or grandchild.

Written for younger readers, this is a North Pole adventure. It is all about friendship and the dangers of curiosity. Fawn is lonesome. Her parents leave her when they go about their daily lives and preparing for reindeer games. The elves are lovable but the two assigned closest to her each day are Forgetful. They don't notice what Fawn is up too. From them she learns how to get away to the exciting and dangerous outside world.
For the first time, Fawn makes friends. Together these friends have an adventure that ends up being more dangerous than they could have imagined. Soon there is a mystery to be solved and all the residents of the North Pole have to pull together to save a lot of animals.
There is some violence and it may be traumatic for the youngest, most sensitive readers. If you are concerned about your children, have the adults read through it first. In the end, the friend s triumph.
I rarely give a 5 star rating, but this is a delightful, charming, humorous, yet meaningful story perfect for young children to read alone or to have read to them. While I don't have children, I can easily imagine reading this story to a group of kids at Christmas time or giving a copy to a young reader.
The dangers Fawn and her friends face are of the Disney type where, while there is tension and suspense, the outcome is easily pictured. The good guys are not saintly, but funny and interesting. The villains are comic enough not to be too frightening.
Which, I had an enjoyable time getting to know Fawn and her friends Snowboy and Bunny. Who knew that snowmen exercised. These three friends did have quite the journey as they explored. They even met other intriguing characters along the way. The big man himself even appears in this book. There were illustrations featured at the end of each chapter. This was nice but I actually did not even need them. The author was able to tell the story so well with his writing that I was able to picture everything in my head. Young readers like my nephews will enjoy this book as well. A fun time for the whole family.
