When Anja discovers an abandoned reindeer baby in the woods, she cares for it and raises it as her own. They become dear friends and have many adventures together, but as Odin grows, he realizes that he wants to rejoin his kind. So Anja leads him to join the greatest reindeer of all — the reindeer of Santa's sled team! And when she has to say goodbye to her unexpected animal friend, it might just be the start of a new relationship with an equally beloved pet...New York Times bestselling duo Lori Evert and Per Breiehagen (The Christmas Wish) sweep us back into their enchanting world with yet another breathtaking adventure featuring their daughter, Anja. Magical images of the growing Odin joining Anja on fishing trips and following her to school will delight young readers, as will the magical world of Santa's home at the North Pole. This gorgeous holiday story is one that readers young and old will treasure.
"Once again, Breiehagen’s photos are the major draw, and he shows the reindeer, Odin, growing rapidly as he accompanies Anja on fishing trips, visits her school à la Mary’s nursery rhyme lamb, and eventually escorts her to Santa’s house at the North Pole, where Odin will live. It’s a holiday treat for animal lovers, especially since Anja winds up replacing Odin, the pet she never knew she wanted, with a fluffy white puppy." — Publishers Weekly
