I purchased this book because I was always fascinated by the effects achieved in this holiday classic. While some technological aspects of the production are covered, there aren't too many secrets revealed. That being said, I did learn a lot, and the author even includes a copy of an early draft of the teleplay.
My only real complaint is the poor quality of the scanned teleplay, which makes it difficult to read on my iPad. It's not impossible, but it does take some effort. Be patient and you should be able to get through it.
Anyhow, I liked the book. It's a short read, but an enlightening one. Now I need to seek out a copy of the original show, so I can watch that lost "peppermint mine" scene.
This book was gifted to me, two years ago and I didn't stop reading, till I'd finished it. It's that informative, enjoyable and well written. I take the book with me on road trips and day trips, because I can so easily enjoy it. When I saw this was now available on Kindle, I knew it had to be mine.
I purchased the Kindle edition, late this afternoon and doing a quick scan through this edition, I'm thrilled with my purchase. Best yet, it's on my iPod and can travel anywhere I go and it's much lighter, now! I often worried about losing the book on my travels or damaging the book, now this won't be a worry, as it can stay home and be enjoyed, any time, but with the Kindle edition, it can go anywhere I go and I can enjoy it, any time.
If Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has been a favorite TV special for you, this book is a must have for you. Written by a true fan of the special, only a fan could write a book this well and do this much justice to this classic.
