Author Maxine Sylvester introduces a charming young reindeer in Ronaldo: The Reindeer Flying Academy. As a second year student, Ronaldo hopes to one day be as good a flying reindeer as his idol Vixen Pedersen. But he is young, and the target of bullies who flaunt their superiority over him. But the day comes for the Endurance Flying Challenge and Ronaldo hopes to win the prize. He could never hope to break the record of fourteen circuit held by Vixen! What happens next is a truly charming tale told for kids of all ages. When we leave Ronaldo at the end of this chapter book, he is celebrating with his family and his friend Rudi. Has he stood up to his bullies or has he won the endurance challenge? And what does The Hat have to do with it all?
I look forward to reading the next installment of the Ronaldo series: The Phantom Carrot Snatcher.
