Book Review by Bob Walch
Here’s a humorous look at the holidays from the vantage point of a little reindeer who each Christmas is visited by her seven uncles. Each one is quite a character and the rhymed text explains what is unique about each relative.
For example, Uncle Quint is from Montreal and is a trick-shot basketball expert. He has five earrings, five tattoos and five new pairs of brand-name shoes. He does commercials in TV, too.
Uncle Sven, a literary gentleman, writes poetry, books and plays while Uncle Sy drives a race car.
I’ll let you read the book to see why the reindeer gather each year like this, but you probably won’t be too surprised by what they are really up to.
