“Twas two nights before Christmas, the sleigh was all packed. Mrs. Claus took the reindeers an afternoon snack. She stopped by the barn when she heard a strange sound. She opened the door, upset when she found….Donner was sneezing, Blitzen coughed like mad. Prancer lay down cause her head hurt so bad. ‘Oh no’, cried Mrs. Claus, ‘what shall we do?’ ‘Don’t worry’, said Rudolph, then he sneezed too!”
Inspired by the Standard Poodles who ran the Alaskan Iditarod from 1988-1991, Karen Morss has created a magical new story for the holidays. A pilot, an artist and an orchardess, this is her first children’s book. Ginger Nielson is a full time children’s book illustrator who has a magic wand on her desk and a dragon in her basement. A portion of the proceeds from the book and the app will be donated to Smile Train – Saving the World one Smile at a time.
