Something about this book is hysterically funny to me. It makes my son laugh too. It is one of the most original and funny holiday books I have come across!

A funny, original Christmas story.
Review by allawishus
This is a really cute story of mistaken self-identity. Olive hears "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" playing on the radio, mishears the lyric "All of the other reindeer..." for "Olive, the other reindeer..." and decides she's a reindeer instead of a dog. She goes to the North Pole to try and help Santa pull his sleigh. One of my favorite Christmas stories.

Poor Olive, she misunderstands the song and thinks "All of the other reindeer" means her.
Review by akwon3
I liked this book for two reasons. One reason I liked this book was for the main character Olive. Although he's a dog, I feel like children can relate to his character. Olive is obviously not like the other reindeer, but he has things about him that make him just as special. I think that children can relate because they may not be like their friends or classmates, but they are just as special. Another reason I liked this book was for the illustrations. I really liked how the pictures aren't drawn like typical drawings. The characters in this book are all odd looking, but really cute at the same time. I think it adds a little extra element to the book. Overall, I think that message of this story is that everyone has something great to offer and being different isn't a bad thing.
