BOOK BLURB – Ronaldo is the top flying cadet at the prestigious Reindeer Flying Academy. He dreams of getting his flying license and becoming one of Santa’s reindeer, just like his hero, Vixen.

In the first adventure in the Ronaldo series, the second year flying cadets face their toughest ever flying test – The Endurance Challenge. Will Ronaldo be victorious and lift the silver cup? Or will mean brothers Dasher, Comet and Prancer ruin his chance for success?

In this second book of the series, Ronaldo and Rudi discover friends come in all shapes and sizes as they embark on a superhero mission to help a lost wolf cub called Ernie find her pack.

And, yes, there are missing carrots involved.

REVIEW – The story starts with the mystery of what is happening to the carrots that Ronaldo knows he put in his backpack, but now they are gone. When he and his freind, Rudi, as in Rudolph, find the culprit, they also find a new and unusual friend.

Ernie is a wolf, and everyone knows wolves and reindeer are bitter enemies, as the former likes to eat the latter. But Ernie is just a pup, and a playful one at that, willing to don the spotted pajamas and pretend to be a Dalmatian so as not to be discovered by the Wolf Patrol.

This is a fun book with lots of humor and wonderful illustrations, done by the author. In fact, the illustrations are what first attracted me to the book and had me agree to write a review. I’m a sucker for a pretty picture, and the ones in the book are quite pretty and charming.

The story has an important message for children – what is more important friendship or winning. Children can learn this lesson in many other ways, but couched in this delightful story, the lesson goes down ever so smoothly. I recommend this book for children of all ages.
