About the Book



Young fans of the most famous reindeer of all can fall in love with the original story, written by May in 1939 for a booklet published by the Montgomery Ward department store in Chicago, accompanied by charming new illustrations by Caparo. Full color.



Book Synopsis



The original story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer--written in verse by his creator, Robert L. May--now with charming new illustrations!

Every year at Christmastime, everyone--young and old alike--has one catchy, joy-inspiring song stuck in their heads: "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!" Now fans of the most famous reindeer of all-time can fall in love with the original story, written by Robert L. May in 1939.

Rudolph, a youthful reindeer buck who possesses an unusual luminous red nose, is harassed mercilessly and excluded by his peers because of this trait. One particularly stormy Christmas Eve, Rudolph manages to prove himself after Santa Claus catches sight of his nose and asks him to lead his sleigh for the evening. Rudolph agrees, saving Christmas, and is finally treated the way he deserves by his fellow reindeer!



About The Author



Robert L. May created Rudolph in 1939, when his company, the Montgomery Ward department stores, asked him to write a Christmas story that they could give away to customers. Drawing on the tale of "The Ugly Duckling," Mr. May penned the story of a sweet, homely reindeer shunned because of his glowing red nose. Little did he know his creation was destined to become a Christmas holiday classic. Over the next few years, the company distributed millions of copies of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The book's copyright was transferred to Mr. May in 1947, and under his ownership, Rudolph's popularity soared. Commercial printings and cartoons quickly followed, and then, of course, came the song, which secured Rudolph's place in Christmas history, and in our hearts, forever. Robert L. May died in 1976.

Antonio Javier Caparo is a Cuban-born illustrator and designer. Although much of his early career was spent in graphic design, his passion for animation and comics led him to devote himself to illustration--both traditional and digital. He has been published around the world and has won numerous awards in multiple countries. He lives in Quebec, Canada.

This was a book I had actually never personally owned as a child so I was very pleased to find similar text as "The night before Christmas" and just as beautiful illustrations. My child loves this so much she makes me read it to her at least once a day. Like always, the story of a "misfit" saving Christmas and proving being unique is a great thing is one to share.
