Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—May penned the original tale of the plucky reindeer with the shining nose for the Montgomery Ward department stores to give away to customers in 1939, and it became a huge hit. In 1954 he published the sequel, originally titled Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Shines Again. A Little Golden Book version was also published in 1982. It's Christmas again, and Rudolph is having a hard time. His fellow reindeer and the elves are all jealous of him and treat him badly, which causes him to sulk and whine, and suddenly, his nose stops glowing. Thoroughly disheartened, he runs off to the woods, where he encounters a large and unhappy rabbit family, worried about their two missing children. Rudolph offers to search and uses his eyes and ears to avoid predators and find the lost bunnies. After he safely returns them, he decides to go back and help Santa any way he can, and because he's given up his whining and weeping, by the time he gets back to the North Pole, his glow has returned. Caparo's painterly illustrations are both lush and Disney-esque, and even the darkest images gleam with an internal light. Parents and grandparents will most appreciate the very evident moral of the tale. VERDICT An old-fashioned holiday story, presented in a most cinematic way.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

Review

In this sequel to theoriginal story about the famous reindeer with a glowing red nose, Rudolph loseshis special power and then gains it back after helping find two lost bunnies.In the month before Christmas, Rudolph suffers a crisis of confidence and losesthe red glow that has made him the leader of Santa's reindeer team. He worries andwhines, concentrating on his loss, finally deciding to run away and find a newhome in a different country. Deep in a forest at night, he finds a group ofdistressed rabbits who have lost two of their babies. Rudolph helps them,finding bunnies Donnie and Doris, and in focusing on the troubles of others, heregains his confidence as well as the glow on his nose. He flies home in timefor Christmas Eve deliveries, including a special package dropped from Santa'ssleigh for his new rabbit friends. Caparo's handsome illustrations in anoversize format are in the same style as his work in the recent edition of theoriginal story, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (2014). The color palettefocuses on deep midnight blues with swirls of pink sparkles around Santa andthe reindeer symbolizing their magical powers. The long, rhyming text, however,is dated in tone and has a grating, singsong quality and some rhymes that fallflat. It's unfortunate that the text is not of the same quality as theillustrations, design, and high-quality paper. Those who appreciated Caparo'sillustrations in the original edition will also like this sequel and willprobably overlook the unsuccessful story. (Picture book. 3-7) (Kirkus Reviews September 1, 2015)

Caparofollows his 2014 reimagining of May’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with ahandsomely illustrated sequel, originally published in 1954. Rudolph is onceagain ostracized by his peers and assigned the worst tasks in Santa’s workshop,and his confidence plummets: “ ‘Oh poor little me,’ he would pity and pout./Till one day the light in his nose just went out!” Determined to start anew,Rudolph runs away and lands in a forest, where he rescues a pair of lost rabbitsiblings and soars home in time to guide Santa’s sleigh through snow and fogonce more. There are some clumsy lines as the story unfolds (“Just picture theMother and Dad Rabbits’ joy,/ When Rudolph brought back both their girl and theirboy!”), but Caparo’s images are again distinguished by cinematic stagings anddramatic lighting.
