Santa has a problem. It is Christmas Eve, his sleigh is packed, but where are his reindeer? Poor Santa is dismayed to discover that all of his reindeer are down with the flu! Now, with a sleigh full of gifts and toys, and a world full of hopeful children, Santa Claus is at a loss as to what to do. Mrs. Claus helps a distraught Santa search for reindeer replacements. They look under the bed, in the workshop, through deep snowdrifts, and even underneath dear Santa's very own chair. With the assistance of his elves, snow pixies, and the resourceful Mrs. Claus, maybe they can find enough volunteers to fly Santa's sleigh. Can Santa find enough animals to save Christmas? How can a few mice, a lone moose, and a cold penguin help Santa?

Follow Santa and his helpers as they resolve an emergency in the beautifully illustrated children's picture book, The Year the Reindeer Stayed Home by Regina Puckett. Christmas is in trouble in this adorable children's storybook by Regina Puckett. Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the elves, and snow pixies have their work cut out for them. With Santa's flying team ill, who will fly the sleigh? Exquisitely illustrated with colorful oil paintings, this story is sure to delight children of all ages. The story flows easily as the pictures entertain and enhance the text. It is wonderful to see authentic art in children's books. I enjoyed the bright colors and the sweet depiction of Santa and Mrs. Claus. This book is certain to bring Christmas cheer to all its readers, young and old.
