Santa needs a new reindeer in this third hilarious Christmas must-have picture book, from the duo who brought you Santa’s New Beard and Santa’s New Sleigh!
One week to go ‘till Christmas Day,
The final touches underway,
A ribbon here, a flourish there,
And presents piled up everywhere.
Santa smiled. ‘What could go wrong?’
He didn’t have to wait too long...
Out of the sky a whirling blur,
Of antlers, legs and soft brown fur,
Came crashing through the workshop roof,
And that’s how Rudolph sprained his hoof...
Oh no! Another Christmas disaster! The sleigh can’t fly without Rudolph. Luckily, head engineer Lizzie is on hand to help... introducing ROBO-REINDEER! Christmas is saved once more.
