Oh, those bad reindeer have put on the pounds and been skipping their workouts! They are way out of shape and can't pull the sleigh. The elves rescue Santa by making him a shiny new jet, so he can make his deliveries in a snazzy, modern fashion. Unfortunately, the jet's noisy and breaks down. Santa's in a bad way until the reindeer come to his rescue. They got the hint; they've been hitting the gym, and they're ready to make their deliveries.

I wouldn't have thought there was a way to put a new twist on this tale, but this author has found it. This is a funny story, not a morality tale, but I was happy to see the plot thread of reindeer obesity being dealt with. It's always good to see problems on the table: here's what happens when you eat too much and are lazy; here are the results; and here's how reindeer handle the problem.

I like this new book very much indeed. I wish I could have given it a better recap, but my library copy hasn't been on the shelf since I got it. Its bright, appealing artwork with its comical renderings of outraged reindeer make it a natural.
