Ntford The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth Last Stop on the Reindeer Express is a wonderful way to help children articulate their feelings when spending Christmas away from a parent grandparent or sibli On the surface this book is about a girl who goes on an adventure on a reindeer to see her dad Father Christmas However when you start to explore the book you see that is about a girl who has a absent father did he die? does he work away? The girl jumps onto the reindeer express to visit her dad at the north pole I think that this is likely in her imagination The images are really interesting and add to the text to suggest this is the girls imagination

    I reuested this book from the library after reading my friend Abigail's glowing review I'm always eager to try out new to me Christmas themed picture books and generally spend December checking armloads of them out of the library What I really hope is that among them I'll find one or two treasures that I will want to acuire for myself and bring out to enjoy year after year but most years it doesn't happen Here's one though The story about a girl wanting to deliver a Christmas card to her distant grandfather is sweet enough but the pictures are just so gorgeous I want to enter this world The aesthetic reminded me a bit of the Hilda graphic novels by Luke Pearson The cutouts on most of the pages also add charmEdited to addSo now it's a year later and I did indeed acuire a copy of my own I chose to special order the original UK edition from The Book Depository This is because I had noticed that on this book's goodreads page the top uestion is from someone indignant that the book's description says that Mia wants to deliver a letter to her daddy when in fact it's to her grandfather Given that the man in the illustrations didn't really look old enough to be Mia's grandfather I suspected that the wrong description was actually just from the original version and that a change had been made for the US publication Turns out I was right I think that having it be her father that Mia misses so much makes the book emotionally resonant and I shake my head thinking why on earth did this change have to be made? Should American children huge numbers of whom live in single parent households somehow be protected from the knowledge that some children have parents who are separated? My friend Abigail who has read picture books than anyone else I know thinks that this is actually something that's shied away from Here's the rub though while I appreciate seeing the right version of the story it turns out the production values of the American edition are far superior with much brighter colors and glossier paper My immediate reaction on taking my purchase out of its mailing envelope was that the book was drab compared to the thing of beauty in my memory A trip to the library to compare the two editions side by side confirmed this impression Bummer but I'll try not to let it ruin Christmas

    A wonderful children’s book Perfect for single parent families as a reminder that no matter the distance everyone loves eachother and is thinking of each other at Christmas the Christmas spirit I love

    This is such an incredibly sweet Christmas story Mia is off to send her grandfather a letter when she comes across a strange postbox that opens into a shop that opens into a forest where she finds a reindeer that flies her all the way to her grandfather to deliver her letter in person I believe this is my new favorite Christmas themed picture book The story is sweet and endearing but the illustrations and interactive lift the flaps make this book extra special The lift the flaps are not like the typical ones you find in baby books There are doors to open windows to look through a card to open and There are also strategically and artistically placed 'cut outs' throughout the book to show off the moon through the trees the stars in the sky or the mountains beyond the rooftops of the village Mia flies over All of these fun elements make the overall story that much funThe full page illustrations are exceptionally amazing I love the excess detail the busy backgrounds and the different textures on every surface The people are all incredibly friendly looking and the animals are oh so cuteThis festive picture book is one you will definitely want in your holiday collection It would make a great gift to a grandchild that may or may not have the chance to see their grandparents or another loved one during the holidays but I think everyone will love the magic of this story This picture book review was originally shared with photos at Lazy Day Literature

    the illustrations are beyond incredible its so visually stunning

    Whilst I loved the illustrations the writing did come off as a bit patronizing and twee and I hated being talked down to as a child so I'm not sure if I would recommend this to a younger version of myself or any other child
