Synopsis:

“MOVE OVER RUDOLPH – RONALDO IS HERE TO STAY!” 

Ronaldo is the top flying cadet at the prestigious Reindeer Flying Academy. He dreams of getting his flying license and becoming one of Santa’s reindeer, just like his hero, Vixen.

In the first adventure in the Ronaldo series, the second year flying cadets face their toughest ever flying test – The Endurance Challenge. Will Ronaldo be victorious and lift the silver cup? Or will mean brothers Dasher, Comet and Prancer ruin his chance for success?

“This should be a new Christmas classic!” 

“I look forward to reading this book to my kids every year at Christmas. The story is incredibly entertaining and laugh out loud funny, even for parents!” 

“This book has become a part of my family’s holiday traditions!”

My Thoughts:

I had seen a review of this book on a cphilipou123.com (you can see her thoughts here →Christina Phillipou’s Review ), well it was the cover that got my attention, it is just a little bit adorable.

This is a tale of Ronaldo, his dream is to be picked for the “North Pole Reindeer Team”, they are the elite who are handpicked by Santa himself. Part of the training at Flying School is an endurance race, and it actually advice from his granddad that helps Ronaldo.

Not only is the cover adorable, but the pictures inside are of the same standard, they are colourful and very appropriate.  The story itself is one that has a message, I didn’t feel that is was overused and I liked that.

The message is about believing in yourself, imagining yourself doing something and it makes it easier to do whatever is required, being positive.

It is witty and humorous and has a really nice pace to it.

I would definitely recommend this book to young readers.  I felt it was appropriate for the age range of 6-10 years, a great book to read with a child or for them to read themselves.
