Product description

A high-energy, brilliantly silly, fully illustrated festive adventure story by much-loved actor Stephen Mangan and talented artist Anita Mangan. One of Santa’s reindeers, Dave, is FED UP. He’s seething about having to spend Christmas stuck behind Rudolph, who is forever droning on about his role as the Star of the Show. Most of Santa’s OG Reindeer Crew (Blitzen, Prancer et al) have retired or been fired in disgrace, leaving some rookie reindeers to take the sleigh reins. This Christmas Eve, Dave is behind Rudolph in the procession flying ahead of Santa’s sleigh, and is the recipient of a fart-in-the-face that is the LAST STRAW. He unclips Rudolph’s harness, and Rudolph blithely flies off, monologuing away to himself. Santa makes an emergency landing on the roof of 9 year old Holly’s family, where her dad is wobbling about on the roof trying to switch on the exterior Christmas lights. The lights explode and blast the reindeers to far-flung corners of the Earth. Holly must fly Dave around the globe rescuing the reindeer from various outlandish situations – one is on a beach in Tahiti and has no intention of putting down his cocktail and working flat-out all Christmas eve, thank-you-very-much, one is perched precariously on top of the Empire State Building, one has landed slap bang in the middle of the icy Arctic, perilously close to a very hungry polar bear. Rudolph has made it to Las Vegas and has a sell-out one-reindeer show to put on. Can Holly and Dave work together to return the reindeers to Santa and SAVE CHRISTMAS?

  • Wildly funny, delightfully imaginative storytelling guaranteed to become a Christmas classic.
  • Packed with pictures by Stephen Mangan’s sister Anita Mangan.
