It is summertime in Beresford. Ronaldo and Rudi are beside themselves with excitement: Monty the Moose, the most incredible Magician in the whole world is performing at Rudi’s birthday party!
But before the festivities begin, there’s the important matter of The Reindeer Flyover, an ancient tradition of The Reindeer Flying Academy that marks the end of school term. But Rudi might not be able to fly. He’s injured his hoof and refuses to see Doctor Kloppen. Rudi is terrified of needles and, rumour has it, the Doctor’s needle is the size of a rocket!
Meanwhile, Ronaldo meets celebrity baker, Mrs. Sorensson, and offers to deliver her cakes to ‘Carrot’s ‘N’ Cakes’ bakery before flying school. The weather is hot so Ronaldo rushes through the forest so he can deliver the cakes before the icing melts. But trouble is lurking in the woods. Dasher and his menacing brothers, Comet and Prancer, are hiding in the bushes. Waiting for Ronaldo!
I want to thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is the 3rd book in this series and it’s another winner for me.
I read the second book earlier this year and loved it. You can read my review of it here. This is a children’s picture book series and while I am not the target demographic I still really loved it.
Just like the previous book this one has realistic lessons thrown in. It doesn’t delve to deeply into these lessons but I think it is appropriate for the age range.
I love Ronaldo. He is just a kid but he is such a kind hearted selfless kid. Yes he gets into trouble just like all kids do but he puts others first just out of the kindness of his heart and unfortunately you don’t see that in kids very often these days.
This was another adorable installment complete with cute funny picture that I definitely recommend you read. You can read these as standalones but the ones I have read have been so cute that I recommend reading them all. I definitely want to go back and eventually read the first one since I jumped straight into the second one.
