Ronaldo: The Reindeer Flying Academy (Ronaldo the Flying Reindeer #1) (2017) by Maxine Sylvester is a lovely, fun read for children (and big children!) for the Christmas period.
This is a beautiful read which can be completed in one sitting. It follows the story of Ronaldo who is looking to break the flying academy record. The story is very creative and has a lovely host of characters who all have a part to play. There is stunning illustrations accompanying each chapter which were created by the clearly multi-talented author.
Light, gorgeously written and a very enjoyable short read. I liked the little details present like the newspaper ‘The Weekly Flyer’ where Ronaldo reads about Vixen’s record which Ronaldo is attempting to beat. The book was lovely in how there is the passing of the record from Vixen to the new generation of Ronaldo and I quite liked how Vixen was so supportive and happy for Ronaldo instead of being bitter about it. That was a lovely moment.
Very entertaining and full of adventure.
A warm and sweet Christmas read.
