Last Stop on the Reindeer Express

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

Mia has made a card for Daddy for Christmas, but Mum isn't sure that it's going to reach him in time. Later, at the Christmas market, Mia spies a mysterious postbox that transports her and her card into the Reindeer Express, a magical sorting office that leads to special, super-speed reindeer delivery. On the reindeer's back, Mia flies over magical ports and cities full of stars until they reach a small lodge on a mountain, where she finds someone very special indeed...

Full of flaps and stylish paper engineering that enhances Karl James Mountford's beautiful, eastern-European-style illustration, Last Stop on the Reindeer Express is also a sweet and heartfelt story about Christmas for a child whose parents are separated.

The magic and beauty of Christmas is expertly conveyed, and while the language stays simple and accessible, it retains a starry, exciting feel that works beautifully with the images. The realities of Christmas in a lone parent family are acknowledged, but there's nothing sad in this lovely celebration of the festive season.
