Tis The Season – Day 20

Merry Christmas season everyone! To celebrate all the holiday festivities, every day in December I’m posting a review on a Christmas book. I hope you all join me this December to enjoy some fun and seasonal cheer.

To follow up from yesterday’s story, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, we have Rudolph Shines Again, the sequel to the original classic. Once again illustrated by Antonio Javier Caparo, this story follows Rudolph as he suffers the woes of being part of Santa’s sleigh team. Once more he is tormented, but this time it isn’t on account of his red nose. Being the youngest member of the team and merely a “flying flashlight”, it seems he can’t help but be resented. And as the pressure mounts and he wallows in self-pity, his nose slowly loses its shine! So Rudolph decides to escape, so he can’t disappoint Santa on Christmas Eve. But when his help is needed, Rudolph finds the courage to shine again – and do something for others that reminds him of the Christmas spirit.

This is a well-illustrated tale and once I really enjoyed reading. I don’t know how many people know about the existence of a sequel, but it is definitely worth enjoying once. I’ve always wondered what happened to Rudolph after that famous first flight and this was an interesting read. I recommend you read it – after picking up the original, of course!
