Holly Webb is quickly becoming a favourite author of mine. Her books are such a delight to read. Reading The Reindeer Girl was like being wrapped up in a warm blanket and given a frothy cup of hot chocolate!
The characters are wonderfully written. Lotta is such a heart-warming character - her love for the calf is so strong, she risks her own life to save him. The reindeer quickly capture your heart as you follow them on their journey.
As an adult, I was surprised by how much I learnt about reindeer and Norway in this book. To the point that, I have bored people all week with my reindeer facts! If I'm learning so much, then kids are really going to gain a lot from this book.
From start to finish, this book is an truly magical! A perfect book to be read on Christmas Eve.
