A fun and adorable children’s book about bravery and friendship!

the blurb….

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.

Rudi comes up with a plan to find the pack and deliver a message during a speed test at flying school.  But Ronaldo isn’t totally onboard with the idea.  He desperately wants to break the speed record and the plan means jeopardising his chance to become champion.

Will Ronaldo go for glory….or will he discover the true meaning of friendship and sacrifice the race for Ernie?

Bumbling Wing Commander Blitsen, head of The Reindeer Flying Academy, and mischievous brothers, Dasher, Comet and Prancer also feature in this fun tale of bravery and friendship.

my review

This is such a lovely heartwarming book which I’m sure every child would adore.  The story follows Ronaldo and his friend Rudi as they discover, and make friends with a lost wolf cub.  Ernie the wolf cub teaches them a few things, and my absolute favourite line from the book is ‘Good friends make happy days brighter and problems lighter‘ – what a lovely message for children to learn (and one I’m keeping in my own head from now on!).

The book has moments where you hold your breathe and keep your fingers crossed, and lots of parts that are funny (farting!) which kids will find hilarious! I absolutely know my nieces and nephews would love this and would have a good old giggle during the story!

Not only is it a wonderful story but really does have some important lessons in it about bravery and friendship.  I may be slightly biased as Reindeer are my favourite animal but I truly love this book and believe every child should have the chance to make friends with Ronaldo, Rudi and Ernie!

The link for Amazon UK is here and Amazon.com here.

This is the second book in a series but can be read as a standalone.  I can’t wait to read more about Ronaldo and his friends!



If you’re kids have read this, or you’ve bought it for them I’d love to hear what you both think!
