School Library Journal Review

In a pristine wonderland set in the Arctic shadow of Santa's Winterfarm, Teeka trains the reindeer for their annual flight. After a week of fussing, she finally decides it is her fault that the reindeer have misbehaved: ``I've spent all my time yelling at you, instead of helping. I'm sorry.'' So then the reindeer, with such nontraditional names as Heather, Lichen, Crag, and Tundra, get with the program and come prancing in just under the wire. Brett uses side panels to show elves preparing the Christmas goodies before December 24, when Santa loads up. Borders of holiday symbols and a calendar countdown decorate each page. Told in a somewhat colloquial language, this tale with its humorous close-ups of stubborn reindeer and a sharp child protagonist should prove popular at story hours--but children may trample each other in order to see the many details Brett has crammed into her paintings.
