Amazon.com Review

Olive is a dog. But when she hears people singing "All of the other reindeer" in the song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," she begins to wonder. "Olive, the other reindeer?" She must be a reindeer, after all. She carefully puts down her scissors and holiday wrapping paper and marches out the door. Arriving at the North Pole, Olive is put right to work alongside the slightly bewildered but agreeable Dasher and Comet and the others, where she soon proves herself a surprising asset to the reindeer team. The delightfully silly antics of the earnest but confused canine make a perfect Christmas story for all ages. Now, with this gift set of J. otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh's hardcover book and the adorable plush pup herself, children will be able to act out the story, including the very best scene of all: Olive dangling happily beneath Santa's sleigh. The 8-inch white-and-brown Olive toy looks just like the doggy heroine in the book. She even has a loop on her back for the "flying" scene. Velcro-secured red antlers look as silly as can be, just as they should. Watch out, Rudolph. There may soon be competition for "the most famous reindeer of all." (Ages 4 to 8) -- Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Kirkus Reviews

Instead of the lyric, ``All of the other reindeer,'' Olive the pup hears something else on the radio: ``Olive, the other reindeer.'' She concludes that she is to be Santa's canine helper, so heads up to the North Pole, to join the Christmas Eve flight. Dangling from a ribbon tied to Comet's reins, Olive looks more like a stray ornament than a reindeer, but her doggy talents of chewing, sniffing, and fetching rescue Father Christmas from multiple mishaps. The story is as slight as they come, but the art sings a song all its own. Seibold's gregarious cartoons create an avocado-and-tomato colored cartoon Christmas in which little details shine: In a scene of flutes falling out of the sky and into a snow bank, a cutaway shows a surprised bunny awaking to find its burrow pierced by a silver shaft. Children will like the sophisticated art, even without a tight storyline. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

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.

This is a fun book with cute illustrations. St. Nicholas dropped it off at our house this year for my 6-year-old, but it had all my kids (who range in age from infant to 12 years) laughing throughout. Sweet Olive. Of course she would think she's a reindeer; the song repeatedly tells her so. We were glad she was able to help Santa after all (even if it was her presence that was the underlying cause for the troubles, to begin with!).

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!
