KIRKUS REVIEW

 A charming story explaining how Santa got his sleigh (his elves made it when delivering presents on foot became overwhelming) and why reindeer pull it (because Santa once used his sleigh to rescue an injured reindeer), graced by both pathos and humor (a succession of unsuitable animals apply for the job of sleigh- pulling: e.g., an elephant--too heavy; a team of huskies--afraid of heights). Watercolors in a palette of antique red, forest green, and rich browns are brimming with busy elves, appealing animals, and old-fashioned toys (unfortunately, important elements of a few spreads are lost in the gutter). A satisfyingly large, handsome addition to the Christmas shelf. (Picture book. 3-8)
