ABOUT THE BOOK
Santa's New Team
Written by Trevor M.K. Airey
Illustrated by Natalia Starikova
You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, right? They’re Santa’s reindeer! And they’ve been pulling his sleigh for quite a long time…since 1823 to be exact. The time has come for Santa’s team of reindeer to pass the torch of responsibility on to the next generation of reindeer, but who will they be?
Meet Ruby, Pirin, Pacer and Golden, along with Titan, Jubilee and Digeridoo, too! Each member of Santa’s new team brings something unique and special to the team. Together they have been chosen to take on the important task of guiding Santa’s sleigh. There is just one problem: With so many talented reindeer, how will they decide who will lead the sleigh?
A playful response to the poem A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore, Santa’s New Team will inspire the next generation of readers by sharing with them a story of perseverance, comradery, inclusion, and diversity, while demonstrating that we are stronger together when we share our talents with one another and work as a team.
