Ollie’s Christmas Reindeer

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Review

It's Christmas Eve and Ollie is awoken with a jingle, jingle, jingle sound, so she grabs her sledge and goes out into the wintry, snowy night. In the dark forest she finds a collar circled with silver bells which belongs to a reindeer; on his back Ollie soars through the night and under the winter stars. But someone important needs the reindeer's help tonight, so Ollie has to let him go. Fortunately, there's a way she can remember him all year long.

Nicola Killen's black, white and red picture book with silver detailing is a stylish take on the magic of Christmas Eve, and cut-outs between one spread and another introduce a sense of mystery. A simple, lovely story about friendship at Christmas.
